I never did find what I would need to delete.
Following on from another post about driver problems I deleted the
INFCACHE file. I can now uninstal the offending keyboard driver and it
stays uninstalled. Plus the rest of the computer is still working.
Google shows there is a problem with this file getting corrupted. There
is a second VISTA problem in that VISTA does not regenerate the file.
There is a hotfix for the regeneration failure which may appear as a
public release at some point.
