My K6-II (126Mb RAM and stacks of free ROM) drives a USB manual keyboard and a powered USB hub to which a scanner, an optical mouse, and a card-reader are attached. First the keyboard became ineffective, then a few days later a dialog box appeared on boot-up to tell me that Windows "could not detect a mouse". At that point the computer was virtually out of action, of course. I discovered that my original PS2 mouse worked OK, and later, that a PS2 keyboard did too. So I'm back in business, sort of, but the USB ports are still OUT. System Tools reports OK as does my Sandra program. I suspected virus intrusion (though there is a firewall and bang-up-to-date antivirus) but the outfit works perfectly in all other respects and AV scanning gives a clear report. Can anybody out there give me a clue?

(It might be as well for me to confess that I am kind of ancient and not particularly clued up on computers, so if it shows, bear with me......)

Regards and thanks
