virus---keyboad/mouse not working
Posted on 2002-05-18
I got a virus that keeps my mouse and keyboard from working..
I recently, in the last week, loaded pc cillian 2000 upgrading from version 6.0
yesterday the problems started. the first clue i had a problem was that my mouse and keyboard did not work on a start up.
ran scan and found 2 viruses....worm_badtrans.b
and also worm_klez.h
files were quaranteened.
In trying to fix the problem,,
started in safe mode, and followed instruction for each to clean then rebooted. I did not find any of the indicated changes in the registry, and so did not change any of the copy there. while i did not find any problems wit the registery, i did find the file cp_25389.nls which i deleted.
have rebooted several times,
.none have worked in regular windows load.
1 time, tried safe mode, and when I tried to open pcc2000, got a blue screen that failure in pccmain etc ect etc krnl386.exe.
rebooted and it did not reappear. I have run pc virus scan 2 other times with no viruses detected with p[attern 283 AND Engine 18.104.22.1681 and program 22.214.171.1246
i do find that on regular windows load, sometimes windows quites with just a few desktop icon pictures missing...and the hourglass onscreen, but no keyboard or mouse working...except the mouse moves but no clicking..
thanks for the help.
basicially, the scan does not pick up any problems but it still does not work...Help and thanks
systems is win 98, pIII 500 mhz, 128 meg ram etc
status report..next day, did get the system to boot with keyboard/mouse working...1st time, locked up with execution of virus software......the ie gave blue screen.
with several reboots, 2 times loaded ok and all worked.....scan showed no viruses.
then a few more reboots, same problem....keyboard/mmouse inop, like the system has loadd all but alittle and the hour glass sometimes stays on....all icons load ok.
