After fixing up my computer from a trojan, i found that my usb ports would not work.
Whenever i try plugging in any USB into the port the computer immediately freezes and stays like that.
The computer freezes up whenever anything is plugged inside, even a cord that isnt connected to anything.
I have tried running malwarebytes' anti-malware but when i scanned my computer with it, it came up clean.
Can anyone help me with this?

Are you sure you have installed the drivers for your motherboard?

That is a tricky one considering there is not just one USB driver. Usb would be a tough one to diagnose without software/hardware specific tools (that may be available if someone on here knows about them, please)

Try in safe mode.

Before going into the driver issue,

Be certain that you are completely clean of all forms of malware. Have you ran malwarebytes and superantispyware and avira/avast?
Be sure you clean with all three completely updated.

Start/Run...type devmgmt.msc and hit either Enter or OK.

Do you see any markings by any of the individual items listed? Markings may be red, yellow, or black.
