About the usb port, have you double-checked that your drivers are up-to-date for the usb controller? or have you changed anything like that recently that may have caused this change?

About the recycle bin, that one I do know. You can use TweakUI for that. Under the Desktop submenu, you can disable "My Computer" "My Documents" "Recycle bin" etc from showing up on your desktop.

Hope this helps.

On the USB 2.0 problem, you have probably installed USB 1.1 drivers when you used a USB1.1 flash drive or similar that installed drivers with it. This can happen from using early USB 1 hardware. If they don't see the correct drivers to run the hardware , the device installs the correct hardware drivers from files on the device.

Microsoft did have a problem with this at one time.

What you are now looking for is Enhanced Host Controller Interface (EHCI) USB drivers. Microsoft has been using the NEC USB 2.0 host controllers. What you can do is see if you can reset the drivers in device manager to the NEC 2.0 drivers.

The initial Windows XP USB 2.0 release (delivered through Windows Update and OEM preinstallation on new systems) supports only the following hardware IDs, belonging to the NEC USB 2.0 EHCI controller:


PCI\VEN_1033&DEV_00E0&REV_01


PCI\VEN_1033&DEV_00E0&REV_02

The NEC USB 2.0 host controller is the first EHCI controller to be certified by the USB EHCI testing body, and has been the only USB 2.0 controller available in the market during the initial Windows development effort for USB 2.0.

How to obtain and install USB 2.0 drivers.

Also USBman has a page of fixes for different controllers.
