My Norton Anti-virus program removed the following threats from my computer:
                  On 2/26/06  PWSteal.Trojan and
                  On 2/27/06  Trojan.anserin.

In the backup files are the following:

Soon after the removal, my PS/2 keyboard in Windows XP stopped functioning.  I explored device manager and found that the PS/2 keyboard had been turned into a hidden device.  I then tried a USB keyboard, which worked.  When I tried to uninstall and reinstall the PS/2 keyboard, Windows reported that there was a problem (#24) with the device

Do you by any chance have the Windows installaton CD handy?
If you do, I recommend booting up from the CD and going into the repair function. Let it do an automatic repair at first and then you should boot back to the system normally.

I strongly recommend heading over to the Windows Updates website, after this has been done, to make sure you still have the latest updates for your OS.

Then report back with your findings.
