Unhappy usb Mouse & Keyboard non-functioning due to Drivermax 'update' of drivers
On a magazine recommendation I installed DriverMax. I ran it and selected one option to update a microsoft t selected installing an
updated mouse driver. I have win XP SP3. I also have a Microsoft
Wireless USB keyboard and mouse set.

What has happened is that the
wireless kb and mouse is now inoperative - but works during boot
sequence (I have an Asus P6TD mobo and can select pre-boot options for
this board via mouse. In fact NO USB mouse works after boot sequence is
complete).

The frustration I have is I cannot access the DriverMax program through the keyboard only commands because it only responds to mouse clicks. I had wanted to try to fix the errors by rolling back a driver within DriverMax because the program only allows mouse input and I cannot use any mouse... ANY help you can offer would be gratefully accepted.

I figure that the only way to proceed from here is to reinstall Windows XP? Having removed all kb and mouse drivers from the hardware list a couple of times; downloaded the latest Microsoft drivers/software for the usb wireless keyboard etc etc I cannot make a dent in the behaviour...This as you might guess is likely to be a pain in the proverbial to maintain all my software in working order and to re-upgrade to SP3.

Hi, have you tried booting in safe mode and either roll back from within the mouse/keyboard properties in control panel or system restore.

Hi

Thanks. The kb and mouse are usb. They work happily on the laptop (the computer I am wirting this from). I have the potential to use the spare ps2 kb connected via the ps2 port or the spare ps2 mouse via the ps2 port as the motherboard has only one ps2 port - for either mouse or kb. But only one at a time...
