A notice appeared that a Kaspersky 2011 update was ready to install.   The computer was running Kaspersky 2010.
The download and install seemed to go OK until the reboot was required.  The computer comes to the user log in screeen, but the USB ports seem inactive and the mouse and keyboard do not work.  The computer does not have PS2 ports.
It does the same in safe mode.  The ports work until windows gets part way loaded.

I would check the following

1) Can we roll back the mice and keyboard drivers
2) Check if Kaspersky is blocking usb ports. disable kaspersky altogether or all features except av to test

A System Restore (as nobus has suggested) should work, but if you cannot reach Safe mode, try selecting "Safe mode with a Command prompt" option by typing the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:
%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

The chllenge is that I cannot log on because there is no keyboard access once windows starts to load.  The USB portions seems to become disabled after POST and does not enable itself.

I will try see if I can get to a safe mode with command prompt and then try the roll back.  If not will I have any choice but to format and restore to factroy default?

you can do a system restore like here : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
An easier way is to boot from a Bart PE CD (or UBCD4Win CD) and use the file manager for manipulating files. Here  the procedure :
1. rename c:\windows\system32\config\SYSTEM to c:\windows\system32\config\SYSTEM.bak
2. Navigate to the System Volume Information folder.
it contains some restore {GUID} folders such as "_restore{87BD3667-3246-476B-923F-F86E30B3E7F8}".
The restore points are in  folders starting with "RPx under this folder.
3. In such a folder, locate a Snapshot subfolder. This is an example of a folder path to the Snapshot folder:  C:\System Volume Information\_restore{D86480E3-73EF-47BC-A0EB-A81BE6EE3ED8}\RP1\Snapshot
4. From the Snapshot folder, copy the following file to the c:\windows\system32\config folder
 _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM
5. Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM to SYSTEM
6. Exit Bart PE, reboot and test

Use a fairly recent restore point from at least a day or two prior to problem occurring .

** you can add the other hives also with this procedure

This has been an ongoing issue for some time and the Kaspersky remedy is outlined in the link below.

If you do not have PS/2 ports on your computer or do not have PS/2 mice or keyboards available, you can download and burn a special edition of the Kaspersky Rescue Disk to resolve the problem. This should allow you to change the incorrect registry settings to allow the USB ports to work again in Windows.

Be advised the operative word is "should", it doesn't work all the time. You will need access to another computer to do the burn your "Rescue CD".

Ya gotta love them for keeping this update available with all the problems it causes. It must be some form of "Russian Terrorism".
