Recently, I've run into this irritating problem when I reboot. Upon
rebooting, neither my mouse nor my keyboard will work. Have to force
another reboot, then all is fine. Happens everytime - I either have to
do 2 reboots OR simply do a complete shutdown, then start back up again.

Windows XPSP2, antivirus and AdAware and Spybot in place, no report of
viruses, adware, spyware anywhere.

Any suggestions?

TIA,
Fred

Wireless, Wired, USB, serial, PS2 ?

Recently means - something changed recently - what might that be - SP2?

Keyboard and mouse are both PS/2...IIRC, problem existed before SP2...
