I installed 'Bootvis' on my Windows XP SP1 system after reading
After reboot, my USB keyboard and mouse no longer work.  I looked at Device Manager and all services are functional including USB.  So, my first question is can someone help me resolve this problem?

Secondly, I took action to reverse the effects of bootvis.  I uninstalled bootvis.  I reverted to a prior System Revovery Point.  These did not help either.

Another side effect of bootvis was it actually slowed down my bootup.  Now, after the initial boot screen, there is a black screen that appears for several seconds that did not use to be there.

All suggestions appreciated.

Well, I resolved the USB issue.  You have to unplug all USB devices, disable the driver, reboot, then plug in the devices again.

OK, but I'd still like to know if bootvis problematic?
