my laptop worked fine but when i was typing certain buttons didn't type instead the key m would minimize windows, or the key l would log me out. It is difficult to type with out these certain keys and I can't figure out how to fix this. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Could the Windows key be stuck?

I guess could also be malware. Do you speak Chinese and do you know what this is? http://yie8.com/

That's something stuck to your IE.

No they are not. But I notice they are almost like hotkeys because they also open things like Utility Manager, and My Computer with just one key being used.

Well, Windows + M is minimize all windows, Windows + R is run, Windows + E is explorer, Windows + L is lock screen, Windows + D is show desktop, Windows + F is search... hence my asking.

Here's a more comprehensive list from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/126449

Windows Logo: Start menu
Windows Logo+R: Run dialog box
Windows Logo+M: Minimize all
SHIFT+Windows Logo+M: Undo minimize all
Windows Logo+F1: Help
Windows Logo+E: Windows Explorer
Windows Logo+F: Find files or folders
Windows Logo+D: Minimizes all open windows and displays the desktop
CTRL+Windows Logo+F: Find computer
CTRL+Windows Logo+TAB: Moves focus from Start, to the Quick Launch toolbar, to the system tray (use RIGHT ARROW or LEFT ARROW to move focus to items on the Quick Launch toolbar and the system tray)
Windows Logo+TAB: Cycle through taskbar buttons
Windows Logo+Break: System Properties dialog b
