After shutting down my PC last night I booted it up this morning but found that my wireless keyboard would not work, although my wireless mouse works fine. Or at least the character keys wouldn't. Some of the keys were messed up, "@" was "K" and when entering a password backspace reigstered as a key. I tried the on screen keyboard and the same happened. I checked the keyboard settings and everything seemed okay. I tried re-installing the driver and that didn't work and I also uninstalled KeyScrambler but my wireless. I can boot up with a PS/2 keyboard and that seems to work, although if I try and use my wireless keyboard then that still doesn't work and also messes up the PS/2 keyboard, in which I have to re-start my computer again. I think my PC might be infected given the fact that the on screen keyboard doesn't work when I'm trying to use my wireless keyboard. Also my computer bio seems to boot up twice before going to Windows. I've done a system restore, virus check but the problem still doesn't seem to be fixed. I also think it might be a problem with the harddisk.

EDIT: Removed HJT log, doesn't appear to be malware issue ~ Hamluis.

That statement doesn't make any sense at all to me...since a PS2 keyboard works properly.

Just a thought. Have you tried replacing the batteries for your keyboard. Some very crazy things can happen when the batteries in the keyboard and/or mouse get weak.

I would do a cleaning of the key caps.
