I have currently disabled my windows key as a hopefully temporary fix. The key on the keyboard is not stuck, just the computer thinks it is continually being pressed.

If there any other fix than the registry fix and re-installing windows? I don't care to lose all my data.

Sounds like you need a new keyboard. Luckily for you they are cheap. Desktop? If so buy one you like. Laptop? Search eBay for you laptop model # and "keyboard". Shouldn't be more than $15 either way.

You could pop the key off, make sure it is clean underneath and put the key back on. Might work, but no harm done if it doesn't.

Usually compress air will work and banging/lightly on the keyboard where the Crl Windows, Alts keys are

I have a Director of IT told me that slightly banging will get it unstuck
