Default r=run/e=my comp/d=desktop/f=search

When i'm on my pc, just out of nowhere, i'll go to speak to someone in game (80% of my pc time is spent in WoW), and I find I can't do that, or use certain buttons to move, because when I press them, they do a different function in Windows.
It's the most annoying thing in the world, and the only thing I can do to get rid of it, is to reset.
Like it says in the subject, if i press E, i get my computer windows come up, if i press it 5 times, i get 5 my computers come up. If i press r, like /r, in game is to reply to someone, Run, comes up. F brings up windows search, and there are others, but these are the most used, because these are buttons I use alot and so I often get these being used in windows instead.
Anyone know if theres some sort of short cut on the keyoard which causes this? I Know that windows key + these letters causes these actions, but both windows keys are disabled (microsoft keyboard). Any ideas?
