This is why I switched to Linux a few years ago, but I switched back to Windows 7 hoping it would be better.
So, this is one last post for Win related hope. That and I never got to finish the main storyline of GTA IV.
There's also the fact that the common users computer can be hacked on site inside 2 minutes (Mac=3 lines of code, PC=live disk)

I turn on my computer today to be greeted (after log on screen) with alert after alert of USB Device Not Recognized Errors. ALL of my USB connected devices failed, including the portable HDD, integrated sound, WiFi, wireless keyboards and mice, card readers, and all flash drives and printers.

Device Manager shows 100+ entries of Unrecognized Device on High Definition Audio Device under Other Devices, all with the yellow exclamation point in a triangle. Oh and two Unknown Devices under USB Controllers. I tried a few restarts (3). The first boot I had no idea what was going on, so I just restarted. The second boot the Audio Drivers worked, but everything else was still shot. I'm typing this on the third boot, everything is still non-functioning.

I haven't tried everything yet, I have a huge arsenal of Windows fixes I have yet to try. I doubt it's a virus, but I'm running scans as I type this out. Just seeing if anyone has any suggestions.

I like Piriform products, but I never noticed Speccy before. When was it released?

Have you updated all your drivers?

Did it do this on previous versions of Windows?

Everything is up to date, I had just booted up the computer and seen this. My iPod had produced the same error a week or so ago (no more syncing with iTunes). The only thing different is that I moved my wireless router and its a real mess behind my computer.

This is the first time it has happened (besides the iPod thing). I'll check for any updates, but a lot of them are plug and play devices (which I'm pretty sure is generic and part of Windows OS).

iPod still doesn't sync, but I fixed everything else.

After uninstalling all troublesome drivers and unplugging all USB devices (internal and external), shutting down and reconnecting the devices, then booting in safe mode has seemed to fix the problem.

Thanks cryptodan, this thread can be closed.

You may have to reinstall iTunes to get your iPod to work.

Oh believe me, I've tried everything. Here is the thread:

Same post on the Apple forum boards yielded no useful results either. I can still SSH, so that gives me some control for my filesystem.
