Thank you friend!
I have a question, what's the difference between this and any other programs?

It's entirely possible that a virus can be programmed to notice that it's on a guest OS, but even still it has no access to the directory structure of your host OS and thus would not be able to infect any files other than that which is on the guest OS.

Hypervisor rootkits have been created in academia only as proofs of concept. By exploiting hardware features such as Intel VT or AMD-V, this type of rootkit runs in Ring -1 and hosts the target operating system as a virtual machine, thereby enabling the rootkit to intercept all hardware calls made by the original operating system. Unlike normal hypervisors, they do not have to load before the operating system, but can load into an operating system before promoting it into a virtual machine. A hypervisor rootkit does not have to make any modifications to the kernel of the target in order to subvert it—however that does not mean to say that it cannot be detected by the guest operating system, as timing differences may for example be detectable in CPU instructions. The "SubVirt" laboratory rootkit, developed jointly by Microsoft and University of Michigan researchers, is an academic example of a virtual machine based rootkit (VMBR), while Blue Pill is another.

can anyone help me please. I am very upset with the problem I am facing.
Some virus disabled my keyboard. The behavior of the virus was, that it opened up start and itself type something to search and disables the keyboard.
Then keyboard does not work even after restart.
I am even not able to go into BIOS.
onscreen keyboard worked, but after few times it also worked partially.
when I re-start my laptop, multiple beep sound comes.
neither of AVIRA , Macafe, Nortan scan helped.
except there were some detections in temporary internet files, which helped in starting just once.
After that the attack was back and this time scan did not even detected in temp.
Then I just came to know that this virus creates some Low folder in %TEMP%
I tried deleting it manually some times, but it just gave my computer some more breaths.
I was tired searching the problem on internet, then i formatted all my drives except recovery and reinstalled windows vista.
Saddest part is now that even after that the problem still persists.
my keyboard is still disabled.
Can anyone please help me out
