Sometimes suddenly the keyboard behaves as if the Windows key is pressed, so when pressing "P" the window to choose the monitor opens. After a minute or so this behavior automatically stops and the keys can be used like usual.

 

How could I avoid / stop that behavior?

 I haven't run into that one before, but it sounds like you might have a sticky key.  If that's not it, you could be infected with something.  If you think you've been infected, post in the Am I infected forum.

 

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

Thank you, Niweg,

 

I had have the same problem with Win 7. No, there should not be a sticky key, it is a new Notebook. And the Win firewall and Win antvir are running.

 

Thanks again

 Two things you could try.  First open an administrator command prompt and type sfc /scannow.  It will run a few minutes and attempt to find and correct any corrupt files.  Next download MalwareBytes, get it up to date, and do a scan.  If those fix your problem, fine.  If not, you should post in the Am I Infected forum.

 

 Good luck.
