USB devices not staying connected

Hi there! Hope someone can help this annoying problem.

Any device connected by USB does not stay connected to the computer. For instance, if I leave my printer turned on it constantly disconnects, reconnects and reinstalls so that I have many copies of the printer installed to the computer.
My iPod, blackberry, memory cards repeatedly disconnect, reconnect and the "how to open" menu pops up.
This also means my screen saver is being turned off even if no one is near the computer.

Today my blackberry won't connect at all, though the iPod has.

In Device Manager there are no errors, and I updated the drives.

This all seemed to start after I did a Factory Restore to fix some installation problems (various programs would not stay updated) and then another one to fix a trojan virus I got almost immediately after the restore.

I appreciate any help!
