Windows 7: Device Failing to install/malfunctioning (USB)

Device Failing to install/malfunctioning (USB)

Hi there :), I've had significant trouble in trying to connect my iPhone 6 to my computer via USB. I have tried several methods so far, but none of them seem to work.

What goes down:
1. I plug my device into my desktop.
2. "USB Device Not Recognized"

When it does connect (at completely random instances), it tells me that "My Device can perform faster", and then it fails to install.

I have no clue what to do at this point, any solutions?

I have already uninstalled the "Unknown Device" and rebooted the computer several times.
