Keys printed on application are not same as the typed.

Hi,
I am facing this strange problem. It happens time to time with my PC for some random application that my keys do not get printed correctly on the screen. For example, if i m using gtalk, sometime later if i press s it prints o and so on. It does not go away if I close the application or sign out completely. but restarting the comp works. The strange thing is while these characters are printed wrongly in affected application all other application seem to work fine.
I am not finding any clue, any known virus or worm or other issue.

Thanks in advance.

sounds like you have a keyboard selection problem - do you have more than one keyboard installed into your system?

place to check would be
start>>settings>>control panel>>Regional And Language Options
Languages Tab, "[Details...] button

should list all installed keyboard patterns, and let you assign hotkeys to force use of a particular pattern (or you can just remove unused keyboards, of course)
