Windows 7: USB Root Hub Issues in RTM

29 Jan 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
UpperFilters WARNING

A word of warning on the "UpperFilters" regedit method:
applying this caused my laptop to no longer recognize my (internal) touchpad and keyboard.

As I was trying this out on a computer with USB problems,
this resulted in having *NO* input devices left whatsoever.

I would recommend:
  • backing up the registry key before you delete it (in case you need to restore it)
  • setting up your computer for some form of remote acess
Best of luck!

P.S.: did not resolve my USB Root Hub issue :-/

If anyone else with the same problem should stumble upon this topic, my issue was a conflict with LibUsb-Win32, which I had installed in Vista in order to have my PS3 controller usable in Windows.
