Windows 7: Serious issue with USB drivers and possibly Ethernet?

Serious issue with USB drivers and possibly Ethernet?

It seems you guys have your heads screwed on the right way so I bring you an issue that came up today.

I just got home from work and both my keyboard and mouse aren't working. I hard reset the computer and plugged in an old PS/2 keyboard to test and it worked fine.

I've navigated to the Device Manager and all of the USB ports (labeled Intel(R) ICH10 Family USB Universal Host Controller - 3A3A through 3A39) have a yellow exclamation mark on them. 3A37, however, does not. Also, USB Root Hub seems to be fine.

I've also noticed that my Realtek RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P) Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC #1 and #2 are both listed with a yellow exclamation mark.

I checked recently installed updates through Windows Update and there are several listed:
KB890830 (the only non-Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems, being a Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool itself)

I did a System Restore back to early yesterday before those updates were installed. When I checked update history, those are still showing. I also tried uninstalling the Intel USB drivers and when they tried to reinstall, the computer locked up.

So, under the assumption that none of the about was vague in any way, has anyone else been having an issue? Do you think it's Windows Update related?

Not sure where to go from here...

I haven't seen anyone else complaining so I'm going to assume it's probably not a Windows Update issue.

I checked the event log and I'm seeing a ton of errors and warnings for LibUSB-Win32. I installed that the other day while working on jailbreaking 3.1.3 on my iPhone and I'm thinking after my computer restarted because of the Windows Update, it's started to conflict with my USB devices across the system. I've uninstalled it and I'm gonna see where it leads me...

The USB ports seem to be in working order now. LibUSB-Win32 was most likely the culprit. Take note that it apparently will reek havoc on your box if you're running 7, haha.

Unfortunately, I'm still getting a Code 10 with the Ethernet and a resource conflict error message in the Event Viewer.

Edit: Ethernet is now running after closing Vidalia and any Tor process before deleting and re-installing Ethernet drivers.

Sorry about creating a thread and solving it on my own. Suppose it was a waste?

Arkham Asylum problem (drivers issue possibly?)
Hey all, I bought the Arkham Asylum game last night, installed it, and booted it up for the first time. The game seems kinda laggish in terms of gameplay, but I triple-checked the system requirements and it looks like it should run smoothly. The only problem I can think of is that I have Vista...
