As of typing this thread I've been having a strange problem of my alt+tab being randomly pressed without it going away. I've looked at the on-screen keyboard and some keys are being pressed but I have no idea what's causing this to happen. It is very annoying trying to play a full-screen game like Paladins and randomly end up on the desktop and die 'cause I stand there trying to get back in the game.
 
What it looks like:

EDIT: 
It's got so bad that it made my mouse stop working and the keys ctrl+alt+tab were being spammed
 
EDIT:
It seems to be doing it more often when the mouse is moving??


Mod Edit, broke link as it appears to contain malware.

Uninstall keyboard driver from Device Manager and restart your computer. You can open the Device Manager by typing Devmgmt.msc command.
