Windows 7 x64 SP1

Perhaps it is just a bad drive or cable but I have had indications of a few devices being bad - Event Log errors - and since the particular drive was new I didn't really think this likely as I have never had a new device being bad, although I know it happens.

What I did and which has appeared to solve the problem was to delete the USB Root Hubs in Device Manager - although if you have a USB mouse or keyboard then it will lock up your computer and a hard shutdown will be necessary. The USB drivers are reinstated on reboot.

It worked for me at least.
