USB Problems

About a year after my first hugely successful help from GtG on viruses I'm back with another problem. I bought an iPod yesterday and after its first connection to sync with iTunes (which was successful) I foolishly removed it from its own cable without thinking that I was (effectively) removing it from the computer without using the 'safely remove hardware' icon. Now the usb ports won't work. I get a USB Device Not Recognized error message with any and all devices saying that they have malfunctioned and are not recognized. The computer has also stopped talking to the printer. I tried a System restore back 24 hours but this has not cured the problem. Is this solvable or has the hardware been damaged? I would be extremely grateful if you could assist me. With thanks in advance. Keith

you werent clear if there showing up in the device manager with yellow exclamations by them. im guessing once the p c has been restarted windows doesnt re detect them. try opening the device manager an uninstalling everyone of them. restart and then install the controllers. plug the usb devices back in and see if the issue is resolved
