Windows 7: Windows 7 update broke all usb

Windows 7 update broke all usb

After a recent windows 7 update all my usb devices stopped working completely. The computer seems to see there are devices plugged in but does not know what to do with them. Trouble shooter seems to lead nowhere & google doesn't seem to have a real anwer for the problem.

I reversed the updat4e at one point to have all the issue go, but it soon updated again and the same problem came up again.

Its 64bit windows 7 home premium OS. A recent Medion computer, im not sure of a model number or anything. If there's any information needed to help let me know and ill give it.

Any help would be great.

As suggested try a system restore then disable automatic updating.

When the troublesome update is offered again just right-click it and choose Hide.
