Press Windows key + R
type in the run box:
This opens Device Manager; are there any yellow warnings - what are they next to.
Might just be necessary to uninstall the mouse and keyboard drivers and reboot for a reinstall of the native XP drivers.
Use the TAB key and arrow keys to navigate within Device Manager.
Use the arrow keys to expand and collapse the device categories.
Right & Left Arrow keys perform the expand or collapse functions.

Not having a Windows XP installation CD makes things a little more difficult: Are you able to borrow one? (it doesn't matter which version)
Are you able to remove the HDD from the DELL and connect it to another working Windows computer? (either directly to the motherboard or via USB enclosure/adapter)
I suspect the problem lies in the UpperFilters settings of the Windows registry (corrupted when MBAM removed something?): To confirm/fix this, we need to access the Windows registry of the affected system remotely (from another system). We could do this from another Windows system, or using a LIVE CD (for example BART PE or UBCD4Win, but to create those CDs, you need a Windows XP installation CD).

I know you said you were unable to use the mouse or keyboard even in safe mode but have you tried it with safe mode with command prompt????
If you can type in safe mode with command prompt have a look at this link.. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Start-System-Restore-from-a-command-prompt
Hope this helps you out!
