My PC after power on blocks the mouse and keyboard, is it a virus or what? After few second windows freeze and all the keyboard and mouse movement do not works.

I have Windows XP SP3.

How can I solve it?

Do they start to work again eventually? Are they usb or PS/2? Can you use the keyboard in the BIOS? – Not Kyle stop stalking me Jan 21 '11 at 14:55

You may well have solved it already, but a possible cause of your freezing and a solution are outlined here. (If you have XP Pro, that is - you didn't specify.) Worked for me.

(Sorry, I'd link to the but the relevant part is half way down the page. Furthermore, being a newb I can only use one link per post.)

If it's not that then I can't be very helpful; all I can suggest is to run chkdsk or try a system restore.
