First off, I'd like to say hi to everyone as this is my first post
Ok, so about a week ago I got one of those viruses that seems to be popular these days. The one that doesn't let you open many applications and pops up that official looking but fake anti virus program, I'm sure most of you know the one. Anyway, I got rid of that using the suggested one-two punch of rkill and malwarebytes, which cleared it out. However, it left me with a few parting gifts.
The first thing it did I was able to fix quite easily, which was somehow make it so that Windows didn't recognize my internet connection anymore (all I did for that was go to "Network Connections", disable the connection and create a new one). The second, and seemingly more insidious thing it did was remap some things on my keyboard. For example the end key not only does what it's supposed to do, but it also opens up the calculator and adds this: "+." wherever the cursor was. Ctrl+Alt+Delete no longer opens up the task manager, but puts the computer on standby (Alt+Esc also does that now too). I'm sure it changed other things as well, but I haven't run across them yet.
To fix it I've tried various key mapping programs to no affect. I've also tried several registry cleaners, they didn't work either. The next thing I'm afraid I'll have to do is reinstall the drivers for the keyboard, but it's a very old keyboard and I don't have a disk for it, nor can I tell what kind it is as the sticker has worn off long ago. So I was wondering if there was anything else that I could do to fix the problem? I'm running XP Pro SP 3. Thanks in advance for your help.
