I have a really slow desktop computer that runs Windows XP (still), and I thought it may have some malware/bloatware on it. So I ran Malwarebytes Antimalware, a junkware removal tool, and another similar tool (I can't remember which - something generic). After they ran, my keyboard wouldn't work, nor do the keyboard lights come on. I've rebooted several times to no effect. I was getting ready to format the hard drive and install Windows 7 on it, but without the ability to type, I don't think I can even do that.

 

I did run a Hijackthis log, which I'm posting here.

Hi Getoutandstayout,

:welcome:

My name is Tomk. I would be glad to take a look at your log and help you with solving any malware problems. Logs can take a while to research, so please be patient and I'd be grateful if you would note the following:
  • I will be working on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for the issues on this machine.
  • Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine appears to be clear. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • It's often worth reading through these instructions and printing them for ease of reference.
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask!! It's better to be sure and safe than sorry.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
Your log does show some garbage, which Mbam should have taken care of - I'm a bit concerned that it is still there.

However, I don't know of any malware reason that your keyboard doesn't work.

A couple of things to try:

First off, please try unplugging your keyboard and then replugging it in. If it is a usb keyboard, try a different usb port.

Then, please try plugging in a different keyboard and reboot and see if it functions.

If neither of those things work, then please boot into safe mode and see if your keyboard works.

Let me know how it goes.

Tomk

Okay, I must have initially followed the wrong cable to the back of the computer tower. The keyboard isn't USB; it's a 2007 desktop, so the keyboard cable has a round end with pins that go into the back. I unplugged it and replugged it, but no good. I rebooted in safe mode, but still no lights on the keyboard and no functionality. I brought my USB keyboard home from work and plugged it in, and the computer found the drivers and it started working fine.

 

I haven't seen the lights come on the keyboard at any time since I ran the scans the other day. I did a perfunctory search on the Dell website for keyboard drivers, but I didn't have any luck in finding what I thought I needed.

It's entirely possible that the keyboard has failed.

 

Please try taking the keyboard to work and see if it works on the other computer.  Or at least see if it lights up.

Unfortunately my work computer doesn't have an input to receive this kind of old round plug with the pins. It only takes USB. I may have to get another keyboard. :(

Luckily... you can probably get a cheap keyboard for $12 to $15. 
 
I was hoping we could rule out a hardware problem by verifying that the keyboard actually works.  To bad you aren't close to me as I've got a couple around.  There's always the chance that the keyboard is OK but it still be a hardware problem because the plug is bad - but not as likely.  It seems like it's usually a problem in the wire to the keyboard.
 
However... if you still have the USB keyboard at home we can try running a different scan:
 
Please download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links and save it to your desktop.
  • Disable any script blocking protection (How to Disable your Security Programs)
  • Double click DDS icon to run the tool (may take up to 3 minutes to run)
  • When done, DDS.txt will open.
  • After a few moments,  attach.txt will open in a second window.
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
---------------------------------------------------
  • Post the contents of the DDS.txt and Attach.txt reports in your next reply
