Windows 7: Strange VIA USB Enhanced Host Controller problems win7

Strange VIA USB Enhanced Host Controller problems win7

I recently installed windows 7 x86 and when it was done I realised that my usb mouse and no other usb device would work, poking around I found out that disabling VIA USB Enhanced Host Controller in the device manager allowed USB devices to work. Also usb devices are detected as USB1.1 (USB2 options are enabled in BIOS).
Its probably a driver issue but its been hard to find the right one, maybe its just not fully supported in windows 7.

Now for the details, this motherboard I bought cheap online as a slight upgraded. It was advertised as a GA-K8 VM. Here is the CPU-Z info:

Now getting this sorted out isn't that big of a issue but be nice being able to transfer thing to usb at decent speeds, and to get this issue out of my head some reason I feel like having the host controller disabled is bad. :)

I've experienced similar issues with VIA USB drivers on a older mobo (nForce4 chip set) with W7. I gave up and reverted back to XP, that solved the USB driver issues. Not a fix, a surrender.
