I went out and purchased a new wireless mouse keyboard set, and though the mouse works fine, the new keyboard comes up with the same problem, dying as soon as windows loads. Also, whenever the computer would search for drivers for either of them, it wouldn't be able to find them. It would just keep searching for drivers until the program became unresponsive and I had to terminate it.
I've since returned the wireless keyboard and am back to my old one and trying to fix the problem.
I've used system restore a couple times and there's no change, and I've restored the us30kbd2k file back to where it goes, and scanned it with super-anti-spyware and it doesn't flag it as anything dangerous, but I'm still not able to make it work.
Since its not coming up as a Trojan or virus anymore, I don't think it's cause of any malware on my system, but I"m not sure how to fix whatever I damaged.
Any help would be awesome.
