    On my other computer, if I press the letter 'r' the run command box pops up and if I press 'd' the Desktop automatically appears. The only way I can successfully type these letters is my going to the Symbol Map. YOu could imagine how annoying this is.

    How do I undo this??

    You have a Windows key, it's on the left side between the ALT and CTRL
    Tab on that key a few times or even use a flathead screwdriver or a knife to pop the key off.
    It sounds like it's stuck down.

    The key combo of Windows+R brings up the run box. Windows+D toggles between minimizing the open windows and restoring them.
    I think there are others, but I don't remember them.

    yeah that has happened to me occasionally, usually just restarting the computer takes care of it
