Default Windows and Internet explorer problem

I have a problem with my Internet Explorer.

I will suddenly go back to the previous page everytime I try to open a new page in the Internet explorer, even though i didn't press the 'back' button or any key.

I also have the same problem with Windows explorer. I open a folder, then a few seconds later, I suddenly jumped back to the previous folder I was at.

Any ideas what might be causing me this problem? I ran a virus check, my computer is clean.

I'm using Netscape to post this.

Do you have a mouse with any special butons? or a keyboard with special buttons.

Also, do you ever have trouble with stuck keys? it is possible that there is a key that is stuck and when the corrisponding key for the "back" switch is pressed, you go back.
My 2 cents

Nope, the 'back' key isn't bound to any key. And I don't have a keyboard or mouse with special keys.

I do occasionally have the problem where I will go back to a previous page when I hit the backspace key. But I made sure I didn't press it, yet the problem persists.
