Is this in all applications, or just Word, or whatever ?

Sorry no it just seems to be in IE

Usual use of 'backspace' key in IE is to return to previous web-page.

Presumably therefore, you are using your backspace in a chatroom perhaps ?

Always try the obvious.

First port of call - reboot the PC, usually solves many problems.
