Ive got a problem with the bottom 2 usb slots on my pc.

If i have anything plugged into them my pc will take about 5 mins longer to boot.

But with nothing plugged into the bottom two slots it starts straight away.

I have no idea what it could be.

Anyone have an idea?

So don't plug anything into them then :)
If the same behaviour is experienced with the same items using USB ports on the back of the computer, the issue is potentially with the device in question. Otherwise it'll be a problem with the front USB ports. Depending on the design of the front block and the cost of the case in the first place, it may just as quick as to replace the entire case and put all your bits inside another case.

Go to Divce manager, then uninstall the USB Root Hub driver.
Now restart the computer. After that try to connect your USB device.
