Could you post your startup programs? Sounds like one of them is messing with your hard coded windows hotkeys. That would explain why you aren't having the problem in safe mode, since your startups are disabled during that kind of boot.
The easiest way I have found to keep up with startups is using CCleaner. XP has a startups utility, but I find it clumsy, and it seems to leave out some programs...

I've seen a few mentions of similar issues in the past. Before I say anything else, please tell me who your ISP is. Depending on what you say this will determine whether I mention something else to you.

If you still have CCleaner, select Tools->Startup. You can use this interface to enable/disable startups. There is also a button to create a text of the list. If you make a list and paste it into your next post, maybe someone will be able to say which one is the likely one...

Do you have Constant Guard installed? I ask because it can cause issues like you described although what I've seen from others it usually affects more than one key.
I've not seen any reports that a windows key is entered. It usually enters numbers instead of letters.
Since it doesn't follow the norm for Constant Guard it likely isn't the cause if you have it installed, but Comcast does not have a stellar history with branded software. I just wanted to mention this to you just in case you do have Constant Guard.

If you removed that abomination, it has no bearing on the issue you are having now, especially since it's only for one key.
What, if anything, opens when you hit the T key?

I would start by using CCleaner to disable the start up command for Click-N-Type if it's not essential (that is unless you know it isn't causing the t key problem). Right click on the startup in CCleaner and select disable. Boot to see if that resolves the problem.
The only way I know of to find out if it is one of these (I would say it's 80% or so likely one of them) is to disable the startups and test to see if the problem persists in a normal Windows boot environment. One technique is to disable half of them and then boot. If the problem is gone, then it's one or the ones you turned disabled. If not, it's one of the other ones. Then break down that half into halves until you just have a few.
I doubt it's dropbox, or Superantispyware, and you can leave ctfmon.exe on. It's a normal Windows start up.

Well, thanks to your input, I found it.
After disabling a lot of software, it turned out to be set in my smartnav program.Queen-E vie led me to it because I had trouble figuring out the key for 'T'. Both of them actually entered a right mouse click.
