Freaky keyboard problem - any ideas?

this is a weird one. i can't figure out what to do next.

i'm running windows xp

when i hit either shift key, it launches programs as it would if i hit one of the keyboard buttons. i've tried restarting, resetting the keyboard buttons, troubleshooting the keyboard. in the troubleshooter, it said something about hardware problems, but did not give any specifics. i'm not sure that swapping out the keyboard would do much good...anyone ever heard of this?

thank you

Well, if you swap the keyboard for another one temporarily, you'll at least know if it's a problem with your keyboard, or something on your PC. Gotta start narrowing it down somehow...
