No mouse or keyboard in Windows Vista after the desktop loads

I have no mouse or keyboard in Windows Vista after the desktop loads. I am able to use mouse and keyboard when booting in safe mode and keyboard works perfectly in BIOS. Background processes/application runs.

probably windows drivers are corrupted, missing or something similar.
Reinstalling OS is a way how to fix this problem for sure, but I understand probably most complicated.
Another option is try Restore if you have this future enabled (honestly I am a not big fan of System restore in win)

More faster and easiest way is to run commanf sfc /scannow which may but also may not help you.
Also check this topic here on EE

it is a similar problem (but on win 7). Check if you have the same usb paths in youWindows folder and maybe it helps you

I also have the same issue in safe mode with command prompt.... isn't that a bit strange?

try some Live CD (e.g. Ubuntu) if mouse/keyboard will work also under this OS then probably there is no HW problem (motherboard or so) but your copy of windows is corrupted.
We could try to find what is wrong, but it can take ages, so if you have such a possibility reinstall your OS and everything should work again

PS: I do not know if you tried possible solutions from my 1st post here, if not, you can try before reinstalling

Touchpad and keyboard works perfectly when booting live cds of any kind. It seems that the problem is the Vista installation. Does anyone know a way to reset drivers with a live cd or do i have to try to sysprep the disk to fix the issue?

I finally fixed this by getting my hands on a Vista Recovery cd. Made a bootable usb og it and restored to a restore point before the issue occurred.
