Dell Inspiron 15R series Laptop [Function keys acting wierd]

When i hit F2 instead of renaming a file it turns off my wireless card.

When i use F5 instead of refreshing the screen it adjusts either the brightness or contrast of the monitor.

Most Dells have a built in diagnostic utility, one of the F keys at startup. Have you run a spyware check lately?

On many new Dell laptop keyboards the F keys only work when pressing the FN key.
