hhmm, their drivers on port might have got corrupted, try switching the wires as they are usb anyway.

also, try starting pc without them, and once the window loads, plug them in again.

Send a message via Yahoo to talldude123

Go to your closet, or a local used computer shop, and pickup a PS2-style keybord and mouse. Try troubleshooting for viruses/spyware using those PS2 components, and check back.

Most places will charge $8 for both keyboard and mouse, because they're outdated.
