Hello All,

I am using Microsoft Vista SP2.I have Mcafee On Access Scan and Malware Bytes.

Several days ago, I plugged my flashdrive in my USB port and an error message came up: "Windows does not recognized this device." At first I thought my flashdrive went out. So I tried another flashdrive, same thing happened. I also plugged in my Ipod, and the system did not recognized it either. My ports were working fine just a week ago.

I do know that I have a trojan virus because Mcafee deleted one several days ago. However, the program is not doing enough.Obviously, the virus deleted the USB drivers. I can still charge things (like my ipod), but I cannot actually use it.

Does anybody have an idea of how to get my USB ports working again? Thank you so much!
