Recently my keyboard started typing random (or maybe not so random) things. First it was just one or two numbers/characters. I didnt put any attention to it, since i thought it was my mistake. But i realised something was wrong when it typed a command from game. After that I noticed it didnt type just one or two characters but even 10 or more. It doesnt just type, I think it uses even ctrl and others. I did run antivirus program but nothing. Could something like that be caused by old keyboard drivers? Or could it be virus and my antivirus just didnt find anything? I have very important files and programs on the computer, so I dont want to reinstall it.

-Fixed, thanks :) I was really worried about it but I am glad the solution was that easy.

Yup, exactly. I have seen this happen with either very old/dirty keyboards, or especially those that have ever experienced a spill.
