OK lets see if the driver is in the right place

  • Run OTL.

    Posted Image
  • Select All Users
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in

    netsvcs
    BASESERVICES
    %SYSTEMDRIVE%\*.exe
    /md5start
    USBSTOR.*
    /md5stop
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\UsbStor /s
    CREATERESTOREPOINT

  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Post both logs

Sure, Ok here's the two logs... although just to clarify, there wasn't a new 'extras' file produced, just the OTL.txt, so here is the original extras from I assume the first scan. Thanks...

If I'm late replying it's because I'm not receiving email notices when you message me. Yes the USB error still comes up when I turn the printer on or plug in either of my two USB flash pens (see pic)

Have you tried connecting to another USB port ? As that appears to indicate a hardware failure

Yes, three different ports. Furthermore the USB pens both work on another computer.

It may well be a USB port failure, but lets check that out

To disable and re-enable the USB controllers, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, and then click Run.
Note If you are running Windows Vista, click Start, and then use the Start Search box.
2. Type devmgmt.msc, and then click OK. Device Manager opens.
3. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.
Note You might have to scroll down the list to find this item.
4. Right-click the first USB controller under Universal Serial Bus controllers, and then click Uninstall to remove it.
5. Repeat step 4 for each USB controller that is listed under Universal Serial Bus controllers.
6. Restart the computer. After the computer starts, Windows will automatically scan for hardware changes and reinstall all the USB controllers that you uninstalled.
7. Check the USB device to see whether it is working.
If the USB port recognizes the device and if you can use the device, you are finished.

Well that was fun trying to restart the computer with keyboard and mouse disabled! OK I did as asked and the usual USB devices were 'found'; Mouse, Keyboard, Web Cam... but the same old suspects; USB pen 1 and 2, and the printer/scanner still don't work in all the slots I've tried. Perhaps these devices all have an autoplay feature and my computer has been corrupted against this? Does that serviwin software which told me my USB devices are stuck on 'stopped' have anything to do with it? (find attached pic)

There is an intriguing solution here, not sure if it will work but worth a try I feel
