I have had anew iMac since its debut. I have OS X.2. Recently, one thing has been bothering me. When ever press the option key, the option symbol appears in the top right part of the screen. When I press the control key, the control symbol, command key, the command symbol, and shift key, the shift symbol. If you just press it by itself, it stays on the screen until you hit it twice. To make it weirder, it has started to make a runny noise whenever I touch the key. What's up with this? I did absolutely nothing that would activate this! It's unbelievaably aggravating. Please help!
