    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
    Type
    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.
    Regards
    Randy
