diabilic,

I have attached the screenshots of process explorer after a clean boot. The first jpeg is process explorer. The second file shows the threads so you can see USBPORT.SYS.ProcessExplorerScreenshot04292010.JPG

Thanks again for all your help,
Pabadger

Macboatmaster,

I looked around a bit with the Fix it Center. I couldn't find anything for me. Sorry.

diabilic,
When I tried to uninstall "Generic USB Hub," my computer hung twice in a row.

Should I try again?

Sorry, lost track of the thread.

Disable your USB ports in the BIOS. Should be under something along the lines of Onboard USB 2.0. Set it to disabled and then run process explorer again.

Hi. Sorry it has been so long since I replied, but I was very busy with some personal business. Anyway, no problem anymore with the usb ports because the old box got a boot disk error so I went out and got a new box. Thanks for all your help.
