Keyboard not working properly

I have a hp laptop with windows 8. Today I was cleaning the keyboard and didn't realise the computer was still on. Now when I press the C letter key for example it comes up with "project to a connected screen " sidebar the g letter key comes up with "gv" instead. Also the backspace and space bar keys work weirdly - back space deletes nothing and acts like a space bar and the space bar vice versa. I have checked the control panel - it is set to UK QWERTY keyboard which is what I normally use. Sticky keys is not on. How can I fix this? Thanks!

What did you use top "clean" the keyboard.

I'm wondering if your Windows button has become jammed as a result of the cleaning?
