Windows 7: USB Ports are not working in Windows 7

Mac OS 10.6/Windows 7 (Bootcamp)
USB Ports are not working in Windows 7

Ok, so I know this is a all Windows forum and I love windows as much as the next guy.
I am on a MacBook and I installed Windows 7 via Bootcamp. It is working amazingly. I love all the new features and the look.
But all my usb devices are not working. I have a external HD and a Zune and a printer plugged in and nothing shows up.
I have tried with my usb hub and without. Doesn't make a difference.
BUT, they do show up in the Hardware and Devices place. Like I can remove them but not explore them.
I have installed all the drivers for bootcamp and everything.

Please help.
Thanks in Advance.

Best Regards,

Repair install.

This kind of thing, you could troubleshoot forever and not resolve. Too many variables. Corrupted reg keys etc...By time you figure it out, repair install would have been long done already.

So skip over, do repair install.

USB Ports not working after upgrading Windows
Hi I recently upgraded my Windows PC from 32bit to Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. The only problem is, all of the USB ports on the back of the computer don't work at all, while the ones on the front work fine. I've upgraded my BIOS, and installed drivers, but still nothing. What else can I do?
