Games freeze when keys are pressed

My game freezes when keys are held down, if i feather other keys than this doesn't seem to be so much of a problem but that's not a practical solution.

On the task manager i don't seem to be able to find any key logger/malware in the processors. When the game freezes, if i look at the processors then the CPU that the program is taking up will drop significantly compared to the normal. The memory/ram usage is not affected.

Also this used to happen on my old screen but when i changed it it stopped for a bit, now after a week or so the problem has come back.

Any help would be wonderful.

ive tried other keyboards, no change, cleared out temp files, no change, it seems to be a select couple of games, all the Armas and Minecraft do the above, ghost recon doesnt and neither does civ 5, i'm not sure what the connection might be?

could it be a cpu problem, only that mine is old and my computer occasionally picks up 5 cores, my gpu is new so that shouldnt be a problem,
