Possibilities:

- Sticky Keys enabled and AltGr (or Left Control + Right Alt) pressed.

- A Windows keyboard layout switch triggered by a combination of keys
(Ctrl + Shift for example).

- An Emacs input method switch triggered by C-\

The latter two would definitely only affect the running Emacs, but I
am not aware of any Emacs or Windows input methods that would act like
this.  I'm not sure whether the first possibilty would only affect the
running Emacs, or whether the sticky key would be system wide, but it
might be worth investigating.
