Hi, my computer recently has been affected with alot of virus's, and i have no other choice but to format. Apparently one of the virus's disabled the f10 key on my keyboard which i need to continue the installation to format. Is there anyone who knows how to enable the key by regedit. or any other way. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Is this a laptop or desktop? USB or PS/2 connection? Have you tried another keyboard?

Its a desktop. and i tried another keyboard its not the keyboard trust me. its a virus that disabled the f10 key so you cannot system restore, nor format. i have alot of virus's the only solution now is format.

Its not the keyboard!!!!!!!!! i used 4 different keyboards now and all the keys work execept f10. when the boot from cd pops up and it asks to hit any key, i tried all (f) keys and all other its just that 1 key. its a virus thats disabling that key because its used for system restore and formating. If anyone has any idea how to enable the key or disable virus let me know
