Hey guys

Everything for the past while has been going fien and dandy but as of recent (past month or so) when im on a web browser for a certain period of time or im just searching or whatever my keyboard freezes along with my mouse it almost appears they get turned off, ive done my virus and spyware sweeps with windows live, search and destroy, and adware personal nothing but the usual stuff, and ive also tried unpluging the mouse and keyboard and re attaching to see if that fixes the problem it doesnt. So everytime this happens i have to restart so its quite annoying.

These issues are happing with all my browsers IE, FireFox, and mozilla. Have any of you heard of this before? im geussing this is some sort of virus due to it affecting all my browsers.

Thanks guys hopefully you can help me

Use device manager to uninstall the keyboard and mouse, confirm and reboot, windows will find them when it loads

Re-install any software for them from the manufacturer's site

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot
