Windows 7: W7 on screen keyboard

W7 on screen keyboard

At a certain point during installation windows asks me to type in a username, etc. At that point there are no USB drivers to run my keyboard (new build with new M/B) so I opted for the onscreen keyboard option to get on with the install. Now every time I boot up the keyboard starts and I have to kill it for the session. Is there any way to stop it coming up now that its not needed?

Open device manager. Is there any alerts of missing drivers?

I had to opt for the onscreen keyboard early during the installation so there was no access to the Task Manager at that point. I am now trying to get rid of the darned thing permanently.

I did understand. It was clear to me that you didn't have the keyboard (it was probably on a USB3 port)

You didn't answer my question:
Open device manager (devmgmt.msc). Is there any alerts of missing drivers?

Open the Ease of Access Center in the Control Panel. Click on 'Use the computer without a mouse or keyboard' and untick the 'Use on-screen keyboard' box, then click the Apply button.

I tried the keyboard on USB2 and USB3 ports but since it was a new install on a new M/B there were no drivers to be had at the time, and no way to look for them even if they were somewhere to be found. I have now had a chance to add the drivers from the Asus CD and there is nothing missing now.

On Screen Keyboard
Would the on screen keyboard provide any protection from keyloggers, or will it just do the exact same function as the normal keyboard and therefore provide no protection what so ever?
