Hi ev1,

Hello and welcome to the forum.
My first suggestion would be to run the built-in System File Checker utility, by opening an elevated command prompt
Click the start orb->All Programs->Accessories->Command Prompt (right click and choose run as administrator
sfc /scannow
See if the System File Checker finds and repairs any issues.
Confirm that osk.exe is present in C:\Windows\System32 and see if you can double click and open it from there.
Disable the OSK, (uncheck it), reboot. Go back and re-enable it.
Create another user account (administrators group) and see if you can launch the On Screen Keyboard using that account.
Good luck and keep us posted.

Thank you I'll try recommendations when the problem gets deep I still scan system:thumbs_up:.I can pop out from C:\Windows\System32 today Thank you for your replay:razz:
