Default How do I make "On-Screen Keyboard" disappear?

I recently was reinstalling Windows 7 + MB drivers and had to use the "On-Screen Keyboard" because for some reason, after reinstalling Windows and all the MB drivers, my Microsoft Wireless Keyboard would not work.

I opened up "On-Screen Keyboard" so I could key in my password. Now I cannot get it to go away! It opens every time I start Windows.

I have tried everything I know how to do: I unchecked/rechecked/unchecked the box that activates"On-Screen Keyboard".

Can anyone here help me to resolve this challenge?

The answer is tricky. Cause there are really 2 different versions.

The first version is in the Ease of Access. This is in the Control Panel. If you already unchecked teh box and clicked save then you have the Tablet aspect of your version of Windows turned on which is why this is being presented. You will have to either disable the Tablet aspect or deal with it.
