I just recently picked up a trojan that keeps my keyboard from working. AVG antivirus (free version) picked it up, I chose to delete the file and was told that the process would be completed on the next reboot. I restarted the system right there and discovered that I could not type in my password in order to get back into windows.

I gave up on getting rid of the problem and attempted to reformat only until realizing that I could not access the boot menu due to the fact that it involves the F12 key command! I cant imagine there is a way to boot from disk without using the keyboard but you never know. Is this common? Is there anyway to sort it out?

The machine in question is a Dell Vostro 1500 running Windows XP. Ive had a couple viruses before but nothing this immobilizing. Any hope?
