    Solved Help! No keyboard/mouse on 8.1 and rootkit alert!

    did you try moving the devices to another USB port? Do the devices work on another computer? I also asked whether you have a System image or plan on using System Protection Restore Point. I understand that the mouse and KB aren't working - that makes it difficult to get anything done.
