hi world.

ever since we have had our current computer, we have been having problems with kbd.exe (the keyboard software that comes with hp i believe), until recently when i installed some new drivers for it, and it seemed to all be fine.

now however, after a few weeks of perfect operation, the computer freezes every time you activate the media controls on the keyboard.

i think i might have been able to live with that, if it weren't for the fact that it has started also freezing for no discernable reason at all, making the whole troubleshooting process very difficult.

something interesting to note is that when it freezes the cursor is still perfectly responsive as far as motion is concerned (however it can't click things)

here's the HJT log:

This issue has apparently been resolved in another of BC's forums: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/101787/good-replacement-driver-suggestions-for-my-hp-keyboard/

Please do not post about the same issue in multiple topics in different forums. You may think it will get you help quicker, but in fact it just causes confusion and more work for staff.

Also we would appreciate it if you would refrain from using HijackThis for help in troubleshooting any problem you may have. Altho it can be useful for troubleshooting some software problems, we use it to primarily aid in removal of malware. It is not at all designed to be an aid in troubleshooting your entire system and hardware. Malware issues tend to come on rather suddenly, in your own description of the keyboard problem you relate that it has always been a problem. That is why you should only have posted about this in the Hardware forum. As you can see your issue being posted in the correct forum got you help in a more timely manner. This is why you should only post once and carefully choose which forum to post your topic. It saves everyone time and is why choosing the correct forum to post in is part of the Forum Rules

Since I see no malware in your log, I am closing this thread. I will let you know that you should not be running two antivirus programs at the same time. This will just cause problems and strain your computer's resources. If you need any help with this, please start a new topic in AntiVirus, Firewall and Privacy Products and Protection Methods forum.

The thing about people

is they change

when they walk away.--Mipso
