On screen keyboard is all I have
Reboot the PC and it will automatically reinstall the keyboard. If not, then you have other issues.
My keyboard malfunctioned and the replacement given to me needed software to enable it and I had shutdown my PC. No keyboard means no Administrator rights means no software installation. Secondary Log On service was disabled means no runas option. The fix was spend $15 for a keyboard that didn't require software.
It was a Microsoft Ergonommical keyboard with IntelliType Pro 7.1 software. The installation instructions say to download the software before plugging the keyboard in.
I won't run unneeded services but turned on seclogon because even running as a power user there are many things I couldn't utilize runas to perform I would need to switch users to the admin acct. which would annoy me.
