    Question; what type of chat room is this? If your PC is not properly protected, those chat rooms have backdoors which will allow a hacker remote access. With the cmp prompt opning, is a good indicator of such activity. I suggest going into safe mode and running your AV and any malware/spyware software you have.

    Looks like your WIN key got stuck, that can happen. So you are actually typing WIN+? commands. E gives you Explorer, R Run... etc. Just tap both WIN keys and it should rectify itself. Note that the other modifiers (CTRL, ALT, SHIFT can stick, too).
