    Hello.

    After removing iks.sys [invisible keylogger stealth] I can't use my keyboard
    anymore.
    At the very first keystroke my system [win xp] crashes.
    In the control panel [system-hardware], I can see that the keyboard doesn't
    work properly (driver file is corrupted), but I can't fix it.
    The driver files are i8042prt.sys, kbdclass.sys. If you have them, please send me.

    I'm in serious trouble, please help me out.
    Thank you

    What Windows version?

    It's a system file so it will not just let you "replace it", hence the question.

    You may have to run XP repair with a PS2 keyboard (opposite of what you are using anyway).

    Problem with free programs is they don't "finesse" out a probelm, the "rip" it out!
    Probably could run system file checker except I don't know how you would type it in.
    have you tried tapping F8 after hitting power button and choosing" last known good configuration" and then doing it with System restore from safe mode.
