Hacked & Registry values changed??

Have you experienced or heard of this:

I was Downloading Zipped files from a known source on WeTransfer, a fee paid file sharing service.

The moment the download finished my keyboard inputs went all squirrely. When I entered keyboard commands things either didn't happen correctly or they didn't happen at all.
I shut the system down and unplugged the internet.

On Reboot to Windows NO keyboard input was possible.
On Again reboot trying to get to safe mode no keyboard input was possible. I was unable to use the arrow buttons.
On reboot to the UFEI/BIOS ( using f2) The keyboard operated correctly.

SO I suspected the registry

I put the Installation disk in and got it to boot in safe mode and the keyboard was operating correctly.

I have since opened the Zip files I downloaded and experienced no ill effects.
My suspicion is that some one in the middle of the transfer ( possibly an angry employee at We Transfer) send me something in a packet that re-wrote a registry value for the keyboard locking it out of windows processes.

Does this make sense to you?

Direct Group Policy features as Registry values in Win7 Home Premium ?
Win7 Home Premium does NOT contain the well known GroupPolicy Editor. This is a feature only in Win7 Pro and above. What is exactly meant by "Group Policy Editor": The tool "gpedit.msc" (from former WinXP) or the group policy features itself? If only the tool is meant then the Home Premium...
