For the last few months my parents have said they couldn't get any devices connected to the desktop to work including flashdrives, the printer, Iphone, etc. I just joined this forum and while looking through the site I saw a post about WinsecureAv being a misleading program. Sure enough that was what my parents were using to "protect" the computer. I downloaded, updated and ran MBAM. It found and removed 1143 risks.

Now the printer works but I still get this error message when I plug in the flashdrive.

"USB Device not Recognized." "One of the Devices attached to the computer has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it."

Any Ideas?

You can try it in the rear USB port of your desktop, or just go to the device management to check if your coomputer dectect it

First to make sure the PC is totally clean I would consider posting HERE.

Once possible infections\damage by infections is ruled out hardware issues can be much easier to resolve.
