Keyboard stops working after login

Hey everyone,
I have a machine running win2k that just started acting up today. After I log in to the network, the ps2 keybord stops working (except the esc button). If I try to do anything by typing, nothing happens such as with notepad or wordpad. If I open any of the office programs such as word or outlook, the computer automatically restarts. I have tried switching out keyboards with the same result. Nothing has been added lately, it just started. I even tried to repair the office suite to see if it was something there, but the program doesn't complete. As a matter of fact, it's not going into "not reponding" it's just doesn't do anything but sit there with 0% cpu usage. Any suggestions please?

    I ran three different programs, and one twice and it did help. Those programs are getting nasty. Thanks.
