1. Drag the preferences folder from the system folder and restart
if that doesn't work
2. Open the following control panels if you have them and turn them of. CloseView. Keyboard (Only US and Roman selected).
3. Look for third party control panels and check if they remap keys, such as One Click, Macro programs.

If that doesn't work. Perform a clean install of the system folder. After which you can move the control panels, extensions etc. of things you know where they came from. Move them over a couple at the time. (color code) and restart to check if the problem reoccurs.
