I have a Samsung np300e5c laptop. I received an update from avast and the computer rebooted and that's when my keyboard and touchpad stopped working. Can't even log on

How long are you waiting before trying the keyboard? Might simply be a case of the system reloading the drivers for them in the background.

2 things to try first:

Get yourself into Safe Mode and try using the keyboard and touchpad there.
Plug in an external keyboard, give it a minute or two to find the device, and then try typing from it.

Thanks for your response. It happened about ten hours ago. I plugged in a external mouse and doing a systems restore, hoping it will fix the problem.
