The link referenced by TsVK! gives the following info......and I have reproduced the last post as well.
I have ESET NOD32 with it i deleted all the malware files. But i believe the malware messed with my registries or something. The Keyboard HID driver would not function properly. Thus if i removed the driver my keyboard did nothing, but when i reinstalled the HID drive, the calculator app was the only thing that opened on key press.
I actually ended up fixing the issue. With Nod32 i took a SysInspection Log while everything was messed up.. THEN I System restored to before the crazy stuff happened (a few days before when i was doing updates) and everything started working fine again! So i took another SysInspectionLog and within NOD32 compared both of them. Registries had been messed with, There was a file called AUTOKMS.exe that caused issues somehow, and some other stuff with the drivers kbhdhid or whatever theyre called (keyboard.ini?)..
Right now all i can say is do a quick system restore before everything started happening and you should be all set.
Given that you have no restore points, and that there is a question mark hanging over the infection possibility, it would be in your best interests to rule that out.

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy
