Try using system restore to before the problem started.

It's not that Condobloke. There was a thread on another forum here where a few people were experiencing the same thing. There was no resolution though...

 

The last post of the thread was the most revealing about the subject but I wouldn't say the information is definitive, or even indicative for that matter. Seemed like a coincidence to me.

The link referenced by TsVK! gives the following info......and I have reproduced the last post as well.

 

 

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/457564/keygenexeautokmsexe/

 

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.

 

When you open your new topic, be SURE to provide the link HERE   and mention the last post in that thread.

Provide a link to this topic....so the Expert there will be aware that you are using an onscreen keyboard.

  • Click Start Menu --> All Programs --> Accessories, and then right click Command Prompt and select "Run as Administrator".
  • At a Command Prompt, type the following command , and then press ENTER:

    set devmgr_show_presentment_devices=1
  • Type the following command a command prompt, and then press ENTER:

    start devmgmt.msc
  • Click Show hidden devices on the View menu in Device Manager before you can see devices that are not connected to the computer.
5. Expand Keyboards right click each keyboard drivers and select Uninstall from context menu if there is a check box for deleting the driver from Driver Store place a check mark on check box.
 
 
6. When you finish restart your computer.
 
 
Also try Shortcut Key Explorer to help you manage the list of shortcut keys you have loaded on your computer. Simply run Shortcut Key Explorer and it will automatically load the existing shortcut keys and display them in an easy to read list. From this list you can double-click on any item and edit the properties of the Windows shortcut. This is great for troubleshooting duplicate shortcut keys or shortcut keys you did not even know existed.

It is much simpler in Windows 7 to open the Device manager, type devmgmt.msc in the Search programs and features box in the start menu, then click on it when it shows in the results above devmgmt.msc.

Device Manager displays only non-Plug and Play devices, drivers, and printers when you click Show hidden devices on the View menu. Devices that you install that are not connected to the computer (such as a Universal Serial Bus [USB] device or "ghosted" devices) are not displayed in Device Manager, even when you click Show hidden devices.

 

 

To work around this behavior and display devices when you click Show hidden devices my instructions should be followed.

That may be correct, but you can uninstall the keyboard drivers from the Device Manager.

Yes you can uninstall keyboard drivers from Device Manager but for complete uninstall keyboard driver computer needs to be restarted. What i'm asking OP to do is to uninstall "ghosted" left over keyboard drivers and currently used keyboard driver and if there is option to delete the keyboard drivers as well OP should place a check mark to delete the keyboard driver from Driver  Store as well.

FWIW:  "Ghost devices/drivers" can always also be uninstalled via Device Manager.  I try to do this every so often.
