im having troubles with usb devices on an xp computer,
computer is virus free,
when i would plug in a usb device it would come up with the messege "usb device not recognized"
this would happen with usb storage devices, a printer, and a wireless adapter, occassionally they would work but most of the time not,
the computer also has a usb mouse but strangely that always works,
i used usbdeview and removed everything in the list except the mouse, i have also gone to device manager and removed all hidden devices from the system,
after doing those things it got a little bit better, but now its starting to give the error again as often as before,
i removed the printer from the system and re-installed it and it worked, now after only one day the printer would not work and its not even listed in the system, i tried unplugging it from the system and plugging it back in, and it comes up with the same error
i dont know what to do next?
