Windows 7: GforW login issues

GforW login issues

I can't sign into Windows Live while playing games for some reason. I tried running Halo 2 and Viva Pinata on my computer, but they say I need a user profile first, of which I have to press the Home key on my keyboard to use. I tried, but the Home key doesn't work. Its not just my keyboard, I've tried several different keyboards with the same results. Does anyone know what I'm talking about or knows how to fix it?

Download GFWL from here...Games for Windows. Install, login then try Halo and see what happens.

As for keyboard/mouse issues, its not you, the software acts funky and you have to move your mouse pointer just right to get the proper area to sign in. It a real pain.

I know this doesn't count specifically as a 'crash', but I have a very irritating problem that started on my PC last night; I cannot log into my profile anymore. There are no errors, it just won't log in. I had previously enabled 'verbose login' using UWT (I like to see exactly what my PC is...
