I do have more than one account but the same result - once it boots to
windows OR safemode, the keyboard loses all functionality.  If I click
to login to a 'guest' account for example, I can get in and everything
appears fine but again, the keyboard (USB or PS2) isn't functional.
As I login and look at device manager, it appears that the drivers for
either my CD or keyboard have an issue.  I tried to login and click to
run my Spyware Doctor but it indicated I didn't have admin rights to
do so which again, takes me back to not being able to use the
keyboard.  I have two XPpro registries for this machine onboard - if
there was a way to get to the other one and swap, that would be
great.  I'm *guessing* that some sort of malware is there creating
this mess but I really hate to do a format and start over.
