Do you have the ability of PS2 Mouse and Keyboard?  Perhaps the USB drivers have become corrupted.

Also, Last Known Good Configuration is always an option, and you could System Restore to a couple of days ago.  Either way, it sounds like either an infection (Which you are checking for), or a driver issue.  If you can remote in, you should be able to check Device Manager and check for any issues.

I would also recommend scanning with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware if you believe it is infection.

Tried scanning for malware and known good hardware. I find it is easier to reclaim a fresh image from an Acronis TIB file.   Mouse ops restored  

Remote desktop unsuccessful cause wrong port put into address statement

Job done.



Thanks everybody
