No unfortunately my laptop seems to have stopped doing the restore points when I checked for this when it happened. No idea why except memory on my c drive was tight, which I have since solved by moving photos to another part of hard drive.

i would run a check on the file system SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
if find things and can't fix them i would back all your stuff up and try a repair install Repair Install

Good advice. Try a restore point before we try my suggestion (which, even then, would only apply to the keyboard if it should prove to help)

For some reason my system stopped saving the restore points so I can't do that unfortunately

ASWKBD is a keyboard hook for Avast AV. Don't know why it would need that unless it records your key input. It could be a look-a-like virus but I would check to see if Avast has a fix or you have the most current version. Apparently, Avast has a history of killing keyboards.

I had just upgraded my avast when it happened so that would make some kind of sense... I will definitely contact them and see what they suggest

Check your system protection settings. It wouldn't surprise me to hear Avast also killed those--So you can't back it out.

If it sounds like I have a certain opinion of Avast, you're right.

Right, now my keyboard is back working again... so I can actually type and say thanks for the help on this.

I will now be using the ability to type to complain to avast. What a stupid problem to cause from something that's supposed to be protecting your pc!

Complaining to them doesn't seem so straightforward mind you.

One final question - does it matter what drivers I have, as they aren't the same as what I had before??

Good job. Nope the native window driver should be good. Just make sure your all the keys work.
