Windows 7: Media Center crashes bringing up the On Screen Keyboard

Media Center crashes bringing up the On Screen Keyboard

I have a new Windows 7 Ultimate x64 installation. I have installed Remote Potato, ServerWMC, Recorded TV HD and Media Browser. Unfortunately I installed all of those before ever trying to bring up the On Screen Keyboard by hitting OK on the remote or double-clicking on a text box. As soon as I do either of these Media Center crashes. I have not been able to find anything like this online. Any help or advice is appreciated.

Err. Looks like this was caused by a corrupt user profile. I created a new user and the on screen keyboard works.

Keyboard Shortcuts For Media Center.
I have a keyboard that can pause/play and do volume control and it would rock if it had a button to change songs previous/next from WMP, even if the window isn't active.
