Windows 7: Keyboard shortcuts do not work

I still can not type the following capital letters yxcvm. And can not permanently delete files using shift+del buttons... (which I was able before.)

You might want to try a Repair Install it replaces Windows7 and keeps all your installed programs, files, folder, music, pictures, etc.

Here's an excellent video by Brian at Britec Computer UK
Repair Install to Fix Windows 7 Without Reformatting by Britec

You will need your 25 character product key, you can obtain it from your computer with
KeyFinder | Magical Jelly Bean
You want the CD key not Product ID. I usually copy and paste it into, say, notepad and print it to avoid typos.

If you don't have a Win7 DVD you can obtain an ISO from
TechBench by WZT
The only working downloads are for Win7 Ultimate x64 and Win7 Ultimate x32
To make all version available use
eicfg_removal_utility.zip

You can't copy and paste an ISO file to DVD or USB Flash Drive, it has to be burned
To dvd Burn .ISO Image Files ImgBurn
To USB Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way

To avoid days of updates, 230+ and counting, and numerous reboots, use
Website Dism++ | New Windows Utility.
Direct Download DISM++
Yes, it's from Chinese firm! When you run it, click on Updates, then Scan, Choose the updates you wish to install, and then click Install updates.

Any questions, we're here for you!

Thank you Snick. I am watching the video. Brian says that if I have SP1 installed (which I do) and the DVD doesn't have it built in, than I have to uninstall SP1 first.
It is logical.
But, on the link you provided there actually is Win7_Ult_SP1 available. So, since I'll be using that file, I do not have to uninstall my SP1, before the Repair Install, right?

No you do not have to uninstall SP1. Techbench links to M$ servers and directly downloads from M$ & it contains SP1. You have to install the same version as you have now which is Win7x64 Ultimate.

With your system having 16GB of RAM, DISM++ should install all the applicable Win Updates. It also informs you if there is an issue with the update and choice to install it or not.

When you run DISM++, click on update (lower-left of GUI), then Scan, after a few minutes the scan will complete and updates will appear.

Two things, make sure you have your 25-character key. If you use Magic Jellybean, it is the CD key not Product ID. When you get to the screen during repair install you want Upgrade.

Piece of Cake, do it all the time. Since you've already run SURT and we fixed the issues, excluding your AV errors, it should successfully complete.

Please let us know your results!

I used Magic Jellybean and took a photo of all the data shown (CD Key is among those.)At the moment I am waiting for the backup to be completed. I still have a couple of questions, since I have never had to perform Repair Install before, nor I have usedDISM++. When should I use DISM++ ? After the Repair Install is completed? Should I run Dism++ARM64 file or Dism++x64 ?
Btw, you said that the ISO file has to be burned on DVD, yet Brian says that the file has to be at the desktop, not on disc (check video at 4:10)

DISM++ after repair install. Temporarily turn off Win Updates, when DISM++ finishes installing update, turn it on again (prevents Win Update from downloading same updates)


You don't have an ARMx64 processor, nor is your system x32/x86. Therefore, run DISM++x64

FYI: DISM++ is intelligent and it will run the appropriate DISM++ program on x64 systems. It will give you an error message if you try x64 on an x32/x86 system. The ARM processor is a RISC processor, meaning it is built using the reduced instruction set computer (RISC) instruction set architecture (ISA). ARM processors are microprocessors and are widely used in many of the mobile phones sold each year, as many as 98% of mobile phones.

Thanx again. But the problem is- Win7_Ult_SP1 file is ISO, so I can not run it. It should be burnt on disc or USB. Yet, in the video Brian says that the file has to be at the desktop, not on disc...

Thank you for your observation. I'll correct my Repair Install file. Actually, you can use USB or DVD or extract the ISO with 7-zip.

Here's SevenForums instruction that has both options from USB or DVD and from extracted ISO
Repair Install - Windows 7 Help Forums

You can use7-Zip to extract the contents of the ISO or if you have it burned to DVD or USB, you access it though computer, then choose your CD/DVD, select Setup.exe. It's the one that has application on the right side under Type.

No bother and no problem with questions, there are no dumb questions. My sincere wish is that everyone I assist, or try to, comes away with a better understanding of their issue, and hopefully, resolved.

Weird, my email notification has

Here is the message that has just been posted:
Great, thanx. Sorry for bothering you again, but should I run ISO file from the desktop, as Brian suggested?


but it's not on here.

I deleted that one a minute later, feeling that I should be more specific. Then I posted a new one, #17. I'll let you know about the outcome of Repair Install tomorrow, but prior to that I decided to do an online virus scan. ESET is working on it for 90 minutes now, hope it will be completed in a reasonable time, since it is almost midnight here in Europe.
