Windows 7: Numbers 0-9 repeat when I type anything, login error.

Yes, I also cannot use Starcraft II or this program called Web assign. I have found that if you hold control while typing it works. I have tried rebooting my computer. Reinstalling my keyboard drivers. This is definitely a problem with only Lenovo's. It must not be a virus. I would think it has to be hardware, but this should be a free fix w/o warranty because we all have the same problem.

I noted this problem didn't exist if I started my computer in safe mode. Both Internet Explorer and Firefox URL address fields worked fine. But if I started my computer in normal mode, typing letters in the URL field for either browser would result in a counting sequence of numeric digits. So, I began removing startup programs one by one (by unchecking via Control Panel/System and Security/Administrative Tools/System Configuration Startup tab). When I unchecked the following (and rebooted), the problem went away:
