You have no idea how annoyed I am right now! Three months ago sommetimes my keyboard would not run after an all night cold boot, a restart did the trick, after a while it took more and more. Three weeks later the mouse did the same. Then it became on/off and reboot. I started asking on geeks Togo.com I learned I need to update both drivers. I did the mouse, but none exist for the keyboard. The mouse seemed fine so I decided to buy a new keyboard w/ a driver when I can afford it. Thurs. morning it got worse- the keyboard would just crap out after a good boot(just like 5 mins ago). Afterr rebooting aabout 20 times the mouse also clapped-out. Finally on a reboot I pressed F10(sys recovery) It asked for 3 system tests Then it said the recovery would make the system the same as when it came from the manufacturer,but no files would be lost. I thought, oh cool. Kind of like an old Packard Bell restore but I get to keep my files. Don’t believe that**************** second. Again I lost my coin logs + address book important files and more. Right now I’m trying to get spell check to work on OE, I did have it by d/ling a 3rd party device…now I’m lost. Any clue? My system was perfect too.
On another forum folks say it sounds like a worm. I'd say this is unlikely since I run Norton 360, not now since the restore, but I am running Norton Internet Security. I need to know by tommorow if it's safe and advvisable to buy a new keyboard? Can a keyboard get infected then spread a virus to another PC?
