Best beg or borrow another keyboard before we get too immersed.
If it's a laptop someone might lend you a USB keyboard to try.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Derek, thanks for reply, i tried swapping KB and mouse, still get the failure. this is a Dell INSPIRON 570 Win 7. It was working ok until a few weeks ago, I don't what microsoft update broke it, since this is a Theater PC this makes it hard to surf Netflix when the dropdown appears, you have to click cursor to get focus (i'm a programmer) and then continue.

Is there a Repair for Win 7? when I mount the Win installs it seems you can only do a full install with FORMAT c

Best bet is to try "System Restore" but you would need to have an idea how long ago it was when the problem came along, so that you can use an earlier restore point:

As you asked, yes, there is a repair install if it really comes to it:
