Please run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor and post the results.

It won't let even connect to the internet with my wifi usb, is there something else I can check without using the internet?

 

I can't even use a mouse there now

First of all - welcome to BC !

 

Does your computer have PS2 ports ?  If it does, you could try begging, borrowing, stealing or even buying a PS2 connected mouse. Failing that you can get a USB - PS2 adapter which will allow you to plug a USB mouse into a PS2 port. This might allow you to get past the problem of not being able to navigate inside your computer which would then allow you to try various tools to try and solve your problem.

 

But in your next post, give the make and  model details of your computer.

I just restored an earlier update and what I believe is the culprit is some windows update that's f'ing up the USB ports. The results for the upgrade advisor are all green "V"'s . I guess I won't update because i can't know which one those update does this.

There is a way around that problem - it's tedious, but it is a way around it.

 

Install your updates in batches of say five or ten at a time, then test. If no problems, go on to the next batch. When you do find the problem resurface, then you have only five or ten to uninstall then re-install one at a time, testing between each update. When you establish which one is causing the problem, then just skip it.

 

As I said - tedious !  But it is a working solution.
