Default Keyboard problems

So I have this problem with my keyboard since yesterday. The shift to the left (the one i use most) has some Shift + letter combos don't work--such as capital k and i. However, the shift on the right does make capital K and I. Not only that but some of the buttons are a little sticky. i cleaned all the buttons out but some letters will just randomly not work.

I spilled a little water on the keyboard yesterday but it was on the right side of the keyboard and another possibility is that i might have downloaded a virus when i was downloading AutoCAD off demonoid yesterday. Those are the only things I can think of. I tried running spybot to eliminate any viruses, I also downloaded Sharpkeys and it also didn't work.

What could it possibly be or more importantly, what can I do to fix it?

That wouldn't be the result of a virus. Try a different keyboard. If this goes away, it is just your keyboard. Could've shorted something.
