Have a dell optiplex 320 that was infected by the FBI virus.  Have been able to clean it up; however, the USB ports will not work.  The system will not accept PS2 as it only has USB.  After it boots to windows xp I can see everything on the desktop but I cannot get the mouse or keyboard to work.  I have tried going into safe mode but have the same issues.  The keyboard works in bios.  tried other usb keyboards and mice with same results. any ideas on how I can fix this.


thanks in advance!
