Re: 'E' key opens a windows explorer

Sometimes certain keys suddenly won't work - instead, they'll serve as shortcuts to other things. As per me it sounds like your "Windows" key is sticking. Because Win + E is the combination key to open a new windows explorer. Try cleaning the keyboard. Or Do a Ctrl +Alt +Delete and see what's running. Most likely an application has a quick-start or a "macro" installed to re-arrange keys.

Try to reset the keyboard with CTRL+ALT+Left Shift+F12. Failing that press the key that windows thinks is held down, and the problem should go away. It can also be the cause of any software or drivers installed for keyboard that has be gone ballistic. try to find it out and uninstall.
