Default Virus info?

Hey I have a problem with m y home PC. I think it could be a virus or something I guess. The problem is the PC doesnt accept typing from any keyboard. I have a wireless keyboard. Its reciever blinks to verify it is getting the signal but nothing types. Only buttons that work are media buttons (Ex. Home page/internet Button, pause play etc.) There is also a small yellow half circle symbol on the task bar in the bottom right that was never there befor and it disapeares as soon as I put my mouse over it. I have only been able to use guest account cause it is the only one that does not need a password. And it cant install programs so I cant get new adwar programs. I have spybot S&D and adawar. Ad awar shows no problems. S&D shows 5 problems that can not be fixed. and McAffe shows no problems. I started in safe multiple safe modes, in which none of them worked. I reset to the last known set up that worked and that did not help either. Hope someone is a techy that might know something about this :P anyone heard of something like this before and how to fix it?

To quick on that one to assume it's software related. If it's really a software preventing this then any keyboard should not work. So have you tried using a wired keyboard to test? The problem here sounds more like the Wireless keyboard and the Wireless hub are not in sync. The flashing button says it's picking up something but doesn't mean it understands it.

They both USBs?

Try checking to see if Hardware section says anything about the keyboard? Like if it mentions any conflicts or anything. Also probably try updating the drivers, might be a corrupted driver.

Should be able to get to the Hardware info by Right Click on "My Computer", goto "Properties", Tab "Hardware", Select "Device Manager".

Keyboard should show up in there as one of the devices if it doesn't something may be conflicting.

Checked the Device Manager, saw the little exclamation mark over the top USB Human Interface Device of the 3 USB listed. General info Gives status as " Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

Click troubleshoot blah blah.

Sadly since I can only get into guest account I don't have permission to troubleshoot or update driver. Does not show any error on the device driver for the non USB keyboard though. Neither work too. Not sure why the cable keyboard would have a problem too unless it broke while I had it in the bax XD lol.

Still doesnt explain what the new icon is that shows up on the task bar. any idead on that or iedeas on how to fix the driver w/o access to it? lol.

Thanka alot for your help so far. Really appreciate it ^_^
