Happens on a freshly cleaned keyboard too and no, didn't drown it either.

Also, it happens on all directions keys. S, W, A, D, Q and E. However, skill keys don't get stuck, nor spacebar, or holstering the weapons ect pp.

I have had this issue on 4 different pcs, with a total of 9 different keyboards.

It only affects direction keys, and doesnt seem to matter what they are bound to.

I have often found the toggling the numlock state (ie if it was off turn it on, or if it is on turn it off), and them bashing all my movement keys (ASDW, 2468 on the numpad, and up,down,left,right arrows) resets it.

I have not noticed any sort of pattern to when it happens.

don't know if this will help, but a similar situation was happening in WoW for my girlfriend a few weeks back. we have a mouse that lets you program macros on the fly and somehow she had programed some random movements. all i had to do was go into the mouse controls and delete the macro. if you have a gaming mouse that lets you program macros on the go, check and make sure that hasn't happened accidentally.

other than that, i have no idea.

good luck!

Didnt hitting the shift key a lot, turn the ease of access thing back on? I know it does something on Vista atleast...

Well, the suggestion to press the NUM key when it happens and to hit the direction keys together with the arrow keys seems to help somewhat.

At least I was able to get rid of the running by doing that. Had it happen 3 times today. 2 times the NUM trick worked, the other time I had to unbind/reasign.

Sometimes I find a movement button stuck down. This might be from alt+tabbing or popups (I run in windowed mode). My fix is quickly hit all movement buttons really fast for a few seconds and it fixes it.
