Okay here's the issue:
Started with trying to install a PlayStation 3 Controller to my system using some drivers that didn't work and in-turn they ended up corrupting my drivers.
The reboot after installing the dodgey PS3 controller drivers left me locked out of my PC at the welcome logon screen as USB drivers had been corrupted as well as others. Locked out meaning: Mouse and Keyboard frozen, no input or response at all. Safe mode didn't affect it one bit. No benefits booting in that mode.
The temporary work-around has been to use a keyboard with a PS/2 connector as this doesn't use USB drivers, I was able to login to my computer and start assessing the damage.
So the immediate look is, windows classic theme and the only control I have is a 15 year old keyboard to navigate. I've managed to take a screenshot of the corrupt/missing drivers.
Error log: Click here to download.
I know this not to have been a virus as I've scanned my system with no results and the heuristics of Eset's NOD32 would of picked it up in the first place. I've uninstalled the drivers that came with the PS3 driver and all softwares to do with it. The Parallel Port Joystick Enumerator in the image is now uninstalled as well. This driver was most likely the cause of the mess-up I think.
The drivers with the yellow caution symbols can't be reinstalled buy my efforts so far. I've uninstalled them and rebooted/tried reinstalling them. When I press Scan for Hardware Changes after deleting them, the system just put them back with the same yellow caution markings. I've also downloaded the drivers from an external sources making sure to get the same ones. Installing them always fails and they're meant for Win7 x64. They all return TV_ConfigmgrErr48 or ..mgrErr39.
The internet is also down. When I go to configure my network, it says it detects networks but I can't join as no LAN adapters or wireless ones are installed or show. The Marvell and Realtek in the picture are corrupt.
I've tried doing Command Prompt as an Admin then typing SFC /scannow but access to the log file is denied. So that's not much use.
If I missed anything I also opened a Yahoo! Answers question but got little help. Attempted both suggestions without any luck.
Any help would be appreciated, it's sending me loopy.. been scratching my head for some days now.
