Windows 7: Windows 7 text field spurious character generation

Windows 7 text field spurious character generation

When I try to type in my password in the Windows start up screen spurious characters are automatically generated in the input field preventing me from inputting any password. If I do get into the system this effect happens in all accessed text fields. This has rendered my computer useless any suggestion of what the cause may be and how can it be fixed?
