Windows 7: Lockup on startup with USB Dongle after Windows Update

Lockup on startup with USB Dongle after Windows Update

Hey guys, recently I've been having some issues with Windows Update.

After installing 7 important updates:


Whenever i have this USB Dongle plugged in Huawei E220 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia , the computer would lock up after the welcome screen, with (occasionally) the cursor onscreen and movable and task manager can be activated.

The thing here is, when i pull out the device, immediately the desktop shows as if nothing happened.

Also for the first time plugging in the device after the Windows Update I'll get a driver install of USB Composite Device, for each port i plug the device in.

Thats basically it, I'm not sure if i left anything out, I'll be sure to edit them in later, if i did.

Thanks for the help guys.
