Windows 7: How can I get my usb drivers working?

13 Jun 2011   #71

Operating System : Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 6.01.7600 SP1 (x64)

i think your best way to solve this is to re-install windows 7 sorry but that's my advice like i have posted before save all important stuff you want with linux and make a list of what programs you have had installed and use.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

it's just a bunch of mcafee and a malwarebites exe files with an x at the beginning of the filename. that's nothing can;t quickly be changed back if need be.

I'm reading that libusb32 is not supposed to be on a 64bit machine because of this error and I may have inadvertently installed it. checking into it further

I think you are getting confused mate as far as I know LibUSB is for linux As for editing the registry I do not honestly believe that you will find what you are looking for!! we do not even know what the problem is.
Lastly deleting Windows files at Random Ie. your security programs is at best stupid if you do not know what you are doing.

Edit just for what its worth I agree with Brianzion about saving what you can and doing a new install. We have been at this for a long time now and despite several great ideas and a lot of work on your part we have achieved the sum total of not a lot. TBVH I think the time that is being taken up on this is just not worth it.

Higher the mode, more power you need.
It is looking like you, have weak power on the 5v line.

openSUSE 13.1 64bit

Ok been away from this thread for a while and I have to agree with Brianzion and others that have suggested a complete reinstall of windows.

My thoughts were with the power supply as suggested, but because all is ok in Linux, you can rule that out.
Run Ubuntu Live CD, save all important files to an external device, then do a reinstall, I really beieve this is the way forward.

A pain I know, but look at how much effort you have put in to no avail already.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Yea I'm going to reinstall. I'm in the process of migrating files. For the record LIBUSB32 definitely caused the problem. When installing the version I had you have to run it in Windows XP compatibility mode otherwise usb ports will not work on the next boot up. It's a well documented and seemingly common issue as the LIBUSB application is not very compatible with Win 7.

Libusb is used to divert drivers so certain programs can have certain access to usb devices. Why standard usb protocols are not enough? I do not know, but I ended up installing these diverted drivers in attempt to rescue a bricked iPhone for someone. I did my best to delete all libusb files and registry entries but I think I deleted a wrong reg entry somewhere and now Windows won't boot at all or repair itself, so a reinstall is the best thing to do. I don't mind so much because at least the problem was discovered. At least it wasn't malicious.

Thanks again for all the help and advice you all offered, and remember llibusb the next time someone gets screwed over by it.

keep the forum updated and let us now how it all goes it wont be long before you are up and running and i hope it solves the usb problem, i guess windows will install all the updates and SP1auto for you. when the desktop and system is running just go to update.(i would get the SP1 on and any other updates before installing your own programs )
