Windows 7: Dlink WiFi adapter disables all usb ports

Dlink WiFi adapter disables all usb ports

Starting last night my Dlink DWA-130 is causing all of my rear usb ports to not work. If I plug it into the front the computer doesn't even recognize it. I have tried using different ports on the back with the same result. I have even reinstalled Windows and the problem is still there.

Not Sure if this helps but...
