Keyboard and mouse were not working on xp login but were in bios. Entered safemode where they were working.. ran virus scan and deleted mountpoints2. Mouse and keyboard now registers, but when i click on anything, like the login name, it freezes. what do i do next?

I ran the virus removal, but there weren't any actual virus too remove.

That creates headaches and more. And who says it's a software issue? Try this. Boot up a Linux CD (no install required) and see if the hardware works there.
