    I'm running a duel system. I did a driver update in windows 7 and it knocked out all my usb and network. I have no mouse or keyboard (including an old mouse input). I can't perform a system restore which would solve my problem. Safe mode or command prompt won't work either. Of course everything works fine in ubuntu and i can see my windows drive access all my files etc. So the question is where or how can I access an executable to do a system restore in windows7. or maybe get into devices and reload the previous driver so i get my keyboard and mouse back?

    the OS install home premium CD, I have the option of repair which i tried, option of system restore which starts then says some file is missing so can't complete. I've tried every restore point available same problem this file isn't there or that one. I have a few more options like repair from mirror disk that i created which i don't know what that is. The sad part is in the system restore i see the Drivermax installs that caused the problem but don't know how to get before it.
