Keyboard error on Boot time scan
« on: May 18, 2010, 11:04:25 PM »
 :-XI believe a virus has made it so my PC won't use a keyboard. I've tried several different keyboards, both USB & PS2 and none of them would function. The PC recognizes the new hardware and successfully loads the driver and shows a hardware profile but the actual keyboard is non-responsive and it's num-lock light will be stuck on. My Avast 5 scan found and isolated a few items but did not fix the keyboard problems. When I try to run a boot time scan, it says keyboard error and bypasses the scan. I don't want to give up on my computer yet, can I get help or suggestions on additional scanware that is assuredly safe.    THANKS

Read the instructions, download and burn (maybe from another computer), finally use one of this rescue CD's:
1. Dr. Web
2. Avira
3. BitDefender
4. Kaspersky
5. F-Secure
