I've basically been all over the internet trying to find ways to fix this for the past week (i even wiped my hard drive and reinstalled windows) but i cant seem to find a fix. My keyboard and mouse will disconnect and reconnect with the windows sounds repeatedly within the same minute. my keyboard will choose not the press i key i pressed or even repeat a key like sticky keys. my mouse will appear at random points at the screen, click randomly, or not allow me to click at all until i repeatedly click ctrl,alt,del until i can use them again. the only thing that fixes this is during a malware scan being active (malwarebytes advanced scanning with rookits enabled so it lasts longer so i can use my peripherals longer). during the scan its like nothing ever happened and its back to normal, but when no scan is active or the application is closed, the events above occur. im confused as to why it only works when a scan is active and why i havent found anybody with a problem as specific as mine. the thing is after the advanced scan, nothing comes up except maybe a single PUP and i take action but nothing works.
I received a malware alert about 2 files from my avast anti-virus, it recommended that I press OK to delete them, I did, and then it said something about a " boot scan " and I pressed OK, my system started to restart ( I realized what a boot scan was, haha ) then instead of the usual boot up things with the logo and stuff it started a scan, since I knew those 2 files were not malware I canceled the scan and Windows started, but the screen was darker, taskbar was back to classic style, sound was disabled, the wi-fi icon didn't even appear, and my usb mouse was not working but my phone was connected and charging, I couldn't do some things like adjust the brightness, etc. After I went to dr. Google in order to find a fix I found a forum thread and the recommended fix was to go to msconfig, services tab, and check enable all. Indeed my services were all stopped except for the Avast Anti-Virus ones, I enabled all, restarted, everything returned to normal except my mouse which is not working at all, no lights as well. (Had problems with this when mouse's under light and clicks were working but the cursor was not moving ) . My phone connects through USB normally. Everything seems to be working normally except for my mouse. Connected it to other PC's and the mouse works normally there.
