T410 reinstallation fails after loading some windows optional updates

Reinstalling a Thinkpad T410 Windows 7 Pro 64bit:  all is fine through Windows 7 SP1,  then all Thinkpad (Thinkvantage) drivers and then all the Windows security patches (to October 2013).
HOWEVER loading some optional windows updates ( Bluetooth), or Windows .Net, or some of the other optional updates result in -get this- any keyboard entry freezing the currently active application it is meant for. 

All other applications open and work fine as long as only the mouse is used. A keyboard entry only freezes the application it is meant for.  I once succeeded in having Google respond by entering a VOICE search item, but could never cut and paste ( -> keyboard entry!) into a Google search or any application
Some other clues: rolling back (windows restore points) sometimes but NOT always return to a machine in good status. And starting in safe mode, the problem disappears. I have not had the patience to figure out which service /driver is causing the keyboard glitch. Will be ignoring these optional updates for now, but it would be good to know the reason this is happening ( a strange combination of drivers / inappropriate order loading updates? )
