I am getting reports in windows and device manager of an unknown device attached to computer, but there are no devices attached.

Hardware error has been ruled out by a computer technician but still get messages. (screenshots attached)[attachment=130880:Untitled2.jpg]

Seems if i re-insert the device in the port and then remove safely error disappears.

Still had to pay 45 in resolving the problem though.

Error probanly results from not properly removing USB devices from the system, IMO.

Sounds silly to me...but try one solution offered...close the system down properly, then unplug the system's power cord. Leave unplugged for about 2 minutes, then reconnect, boot the system.
