OK, I tried going through services.msc to make sure nothing there was perhaps disabled, then tried Brink's suggestion and unplugged/uninstalled and/or disabled printers and other peripherals one by one. No change. Then I unplugged the w/mouse and uninstalled the driver
, rebooted, plugged it back in, let Windows install a driver and everything works again!!!! Bloody computer, grrrrrrrrrr
Thanks again fellas, really appreciate the help we deadheads get from this site.
