I have worked on a couple of machine lately that have had rootkits (.zeroaccess) and after removal devices would not work. I tried the easy stuff like uninstalling/reinstalling devices, replaceing driver files, reinstalling inf files for the devices, SFC, and repair installs but the devices do not work correctly again. On one machine it is the CDROM, on another the mouse and keyboard. The mouse/keyboard with work ater a removal and reinstall but stop working after a reboot. A wipe and reinstall will do the trick but I sure would like a better answer. Has anyone else run into this or found an answer?

Are you looking for a general answer or do you have an infected machine?
