    ok, panicking a bit here. i found out that keyscrambler still had a driver file in the system32 folder long after i uninstalled the program. so i deleted the file and now no keyboards work. i have been using a ps/2 one, and am getting this

    Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

    Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.

    i have tried uninstalling the drivers that still seem to exist and trying to let windows find it again, but no dice. recovery on the xp cd won't let me use it because even though i don't use a pass to log on, it thinks i do. the generic xp drivers are there, they just won't load i guess. what do i do, i really do not want to reinstall everything over again. for now i'm having to use the onscreen keyboard.

    Hi again Global :) I tried doing those things and man it just got to the point where I said screw it and reinstalled. It kinda scared me away from Keyscrambler now, whether it was the softwares fault or not :) But all is well with a new clean system...speaking of which I'll never turn off System Restore ever again, lol
