navigate with the keyboard to accessibility options and turn on mousekeys

or even navigate to system restore at boot if you can't get to it from in windows

You will probably need to get a PS-2 Mouse to overcome the problem.

ps 2 has i cant get internet explorer and lot of other programs to work...cant get it to system restore to a better point

Try starting in safe Mode, then while in Safe Mode try System Restore again.

Failing that, again in Safe Mode, run all your Anti-everything programs - might be a nasty somewhere.

computer seems to be in some safety feature, i cant enter or run any anti virus. internet explorer not coming up....try to check hardware..says theres 1 already getting installed. without internet i cant any updates etc....tried safe mode but it wont tell me do system restore

I don't think it is any safety feature - more likely you have a 'nasty' on-board!

... "says theres 1 already getting installed" - I don't understand this bit? Is there a message of any sort? what 1 getting installed??

i am going to borrow an anti virus cd and try to instal and run it, on the task manager there is 24 programs running, slowing everything down.
i cant access hardware to check whats installing

I presume slammert has morphed into gbell123 - very confusing :@)
