    Bootcamp - Windows Mouse/Keyboard Problem

    Hi there,

    I have had Windows 7 installed on my new Mac. I was having difficulty with external hard drives. I read on a forum to in Windows uninstall all USB drivers and then they would be reinstalled and fix my external hard drive problems. Unfortunately I think I uninstalled the drivers that make the trackpad and keyboard work in Windows on my Mac. Now when I start in Windows I can't shift the mouse or use the keyboard. How do I fix this?

    MacBook Pro
    Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013
    Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core i5
    Memory 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
    Graphics Intel Iris 1536 MB
    Serial Number C2QN7030FH00
    Software OS X 10.9.5 (13F34)
    Using Windows 7 on Bootcamp
    (attached image is the driver I think I uninstalled from memory)

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    P.s. If you have any advice about using external hard drives on my mac using Windows in Bootcamp, that would be appreciated too!

    OK, I was going to suggest plugging in an external USB mouse and keyboard if you have one available, but if you have uninstalled the drivers for the USB Controller, then I am not sure plugging in any USB device would see Windows detect and install it. It might be worth trying, just to see what happens, but I am not holding my breath!! If an external mouse does not work, then I get the feeling you are looking at a full reinstall of Windows....sorry.
