Well as you have already reinstalled the windows than the next thing would be to get the keyboard replaced as there could be an issue with the keyboard itself.Also try connecting a external keyboard if you have and see if that works.Contact your manufacturer to get it replaced.

Shift key and symbols dont match

You can change the keyboard layout to match the one you have.

In your start box, select run and type "intl.cpl" (without quotes).

Under the formats tab, change the format. try the ones with English (" ") and then click apply.
To see the format selected,open the On-screen keyboard ( type "osk.exe" in run) and hold shift to view the symbols.
Try different formats until you find something that matches the phisical keyboard layout.

Good thing only the keyboard is not working! To answer your question, yes. Changing your laptop's keyboard should fix it. Letting it dry for a couple of days (depends on how wet it go) MIGHT also work. Well, if it doesn't work, just continue with your plan to change the keyboard.

Thanks for using Fixya.

You can't actually remove it, it's a core part of any OS - you probably uninstall it. If you have done a full reboot and it hasn't been automatically reinstalled then something is preventing that. 
First probability is that it has something to do with Kasperski - disconnect your internet link, disable Kasperski and shutdown the pc. Wait one minute and start it up again .
If even now it doesn't work then option 2 - you might have a "ghost" of the incorrectly installed keyboard hanging around that prevents the system from
re-installing it correctly. Reenable Kasperski and try this:
- open a Command window 
- type:
  set devmgr_ show_nonpresent_devices=1
press Enter
- type:
press Enter (Device Manager opens up) and don't close the Command window
- in Device Manager go to the View Menu and check Show Hidden Devices. Now have a look and see what you have under Keyboards. If you see, as well as your current keyboard, a grayed-out "ghost" of the Microsoft keyboard, delete the ghost and OK your way out.
Shut down system, plug in the Microsoft keyboard and boot, and hopefully Windows will detect it; check in Device Manager when you reach your desktop. If it's a USB keyboard, you may need to unplug it and plug it in again once Windows is running to make the system notice it.

Given E-Machine 366I2. Will not take new hard Drive

Shouldnt think it was the cables since you got as far as you have. Could be a problem on the drive and you might want to do a low level format to make sure. Drive type should not matter. Western Digital has a low level format utility on there site.

my other thought is that for some restores you have to have the exact components present that originally came with the machine. so, unplug everything but keyboard, mouse and video. put back to original amount of memory.

use a windows disk to do restore from scratch instead of restore disk. good luck.
