Specs: Windows XP
Hi,
For this issue i really need an expirienced expert. I have HP Compaq dc7600 desktop machine with WinXP Pro sp3 installed on it.
Two weeks ago I get infected by a bunch of trojans, malwares that were circulating ( and still are ) through our corporate network. But those infections are old story because everything end up in disaster. At one point after system restart when I get to CTRL+ALT+DEL screen to logon into windows, my ps/2 keyboard and mouse become unresponsive. I plugged usb mouse and it started to work but usb keyboard still nothing. To make a story as shorter as possible, I run a Windows XP cd to try to repair windows. ( I need all data to stay intact, at least that one from Documents and Settings ).
I started a setup but when I get to a point where I need to use for the first time my keyboard for entering a Product Key it was still unresponsive.
I managed to recover data what i needed from recovery console, copied all Documents what I wanted to usb stick, but still I wonder if there is a way to fix the system. Actually what i want to know, is there any possibility to direct back booting sequence to boot into original Windows, not all the time entering the Setup?

I forgot to say that a file system is NTFS , I tried playing with Ultimate Boot CD but it is very buggy when you need NTFS support or it will not work at all.

You mean your "corporate network" doesn't have some sort of IT group?

It appears you have a virus that disables the keyboard & mouse. Try running a virus scan from outside the Windows environment.

i will try it. i also have Pc Tools Alternative Operating System Scanner, Kaspersky Rescue Disk as well as Sunbelt's Vipre Rescue Disk. Would that work also for that type of virus? I never heard for this kind of virus before and those one which were infecting our network are really nasty ones, no anti-virus software could detect them at that point exept one from Prevx.
This is an offshore drilling ship and all IT support is based onshore, they can help only remotely while we are online.

A major security company went to a large site with similar issues. They thought they could go one by one and finally ended up doing a clean install on every system top to bottom and destroyed all recorded media and erased all flash drives.

Sometimes you have to nuke it from high orbit. It is the only way to be sure.
