Windows Key on keyboard not working correctly.

Pressing the windows key alone brings up the start menu.   Pressing in combination with other keys does nothing.

Thanks guys.
Nobus:  The keyboard has been OK for years, until about a week ago.   I don't recall doing anything to affect it.   And no, I don't have a system restore.

SheharyaarSaahil:   That did nothing for me.

Sorry, only one computer.    I suppose I could go out and buy a new one if there are no software solutions.

Thanks
