    First make sure you've restarted your computer after plugging in the PS/2 devices that aren't working, as traditionally it required a restart for it to work. If that doesn't work, you might need to install the drivers for those devices, or if there's already a driver, then reinstall in case they are corrupted or not the right ones.

    I have a laptop. I believe a virus was attached from a site that that claim my system or windows maybe out of date. I did a virus removal and a system restore after I couldn't close certain windows . The keyboard and tracpad was working before the update. Do I need uninstall and reinstall the drivers?

    Didn't notice it was a laptop, but I did just read https://superuser.com/questions/208555/laptop-keyboards-are-usb-or-ps2-devices where it said that internally it could be a PS/2 or USB connection. If it is PS/2, then I would still restart the computer to see if that fixes it. If not, then you might want to try uninstalling the driver (from device manager, using an external USB mouse), restarting the computer, and seeing if Microsoft's basic keyboard driver will do the job. If there are special functions for the keyboard that you want, then the manufacturer of the laptop should have a website where you can download drivers or software specifically for that laptop, and ideally there would be something that would enable the function, and reinstall the driver and hopefully make it work again. The trackpad should also have something like this from the website, if not included in the keyboard software. I don't know if Windows will have a basic driver for the trackpad. You might also have a disc with the drivers.

    I answered your other question, too. System restore doesn't reinstall items, so you will want to reinstall the drivers, which my other answer should help with.
