  • If it works right in Safe Mode, then it sounds as though you have some software installed that's messing up the keyboard, then doesn't it?

    I'm not sure what you can get running, but a good application for determining what's running when you start up your system (and potentially for disabling things you don't want running) is the SysInternals AutoRuns application by Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell.  It can be downloaded from here:

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902

    I suggest running this application, reviewing everything that's running, determining if you WANT each item running, and disabling those you don't.  A methodical approach should yield the culprit.

    You could also try using the System Restore facility and choosing a time when the system was working.

    The other, most basic method to get back to successful operation is a complete, clean reinstallation of Windows, then be more careful about installing things thereafter.
