When trying to connect to any webpage, I can enter my user name, but nothing gets written when I try to enter my password. It works fine in Google Chrome, but not in IE 10. I tried erasing memory, cookies, etc. as suggested on other sites.

Edit: even bought a new keyboard in case that was the problem.

Did you tried to uninstall and then re-install the IE-10? – avirk Nov 29 '13 at 4:37

Just had this issue, seemed to be related to protected mode being checked in IE under tools>internet options>security un-check protected mode and restart IE. Started IE and I could enter passwords. Checked it again to test and I could no longer enter passwords. Hope this helps.
