Default Mouse not working possible virus??? help!

hey guys i booted up my desktop the other day and found that the mouse wasnt working. Logically i assumed it was either hardware or software so i plugged in my laptop mouse. This worked for exactly 5 seconds. a box popped up saying "installing new device drivers" as soon as these drivers were "installed" the mouse stopped working. I used the keyboard to navigate to the system restore, i picked a point 2 weeks ago to be safe.....well this worked, again for 5 seconds! the device drivers messed me up again!!! I tried to restore again (in the hopes of canceling the driver install) but i find that all my restore points (for the last year) have been deleted! this is what makes me think its a you guys have any ideas or insights?

Is it USB or PS/2? Have you tried a different port if its USB? Have you tried a different mouse?
