This is my headache of the day. The TAB key on my
keyboard scrolls me through all the programs that are open
on my Task Bar instead of allowing me to navagate through
the window that is currently open.

You have an electronically "stuck" ALT key...there are two of them on the keyboard.
Tap the ALT keys vigorously a few times, and see if that frees them.
A re-boot should also free them.
If neither helps, you may need a new keyboard.

Could be that your Alt key is stuck, tap it a few times to unstick it. Then give the
keyboard a good cleaning.
