Windows 7: Generic USB Hub Driver - Unable to find files

Generic USB Hub Driver - Unable to find files


I have an ASUS Sabertooth Intel P67 (REV B3) motherboard and Windows 7 Ultimate. I removed the Generic USB Hub from the Devices Manager, thinking I can reinstall it because I've been having issue with USB devices. When I tried to reinstall it, I keep getting "Unable to find files" for the "Generic USB Hub".

When I do an online search it fails. When I do file search @"C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERSTORE\FILEREPOSITORY" it fails. Where can I get the Microsoft drivers for Generic USB Hub?

THank you
