Keyboard is screwing up!

I have several problems revolving my Microsoft Internet Keyboard. One is that when I play a particular online game, it requires my keyboard rate to be set to low and I thus hold down the enter key for up to five minutes at a time. The end result: Every time I press the number 1 key, a IE browser opens up like you would press the www button on the keyboard. Everytime I press the a key, it increases the volume like it would when I press the increase volume button.
Last time this happened, my computer completely stuffed and somehow the one who fixed it used some sort of recovery tool to recover everything to its original settings. Any idea how I can do this? Please help, as I dont want the PC to die again. I have heaps of assignments due, and yes I am backing up.

Greetings, Lily_Malfoy!
   Delete and reinstall your keyboard driver. From Control Panel go to System > Device Manager. Click the + sign next to Keyboard. Highlight the driver and delete it. Click OK. Restart the computer and let Windows reinstall the driver.

Best wishes, war1

Uh, as far as I know my keyboard doesn't have a driver. Are you sure this would work... it runs off USB.

Yes, the keyboard has a software driver. Look in the Device Manager. Reinstalling will get rid of any corrupted files associated with the keyboard.
