It's a Lenovo Y570. I upgraded from W7. You are correct, it is was the blue USB ports that weren't working. I didn't see anything about any optional updates when I looked at the Windows update. For whatever reason I didn't think to look at the device manager. I blame lack of coffee. After you mentioned that I did see a warning sign over the Renesas 3.0 controller. The drivers were up to date, so I disabled the driver and then re-enabled it and that is working fine.
I noticed, when looking in the device manager, that the Lenovo EasyCamera isn't working, but I suspect that's a driver issue. I've tried to update that driver, but the update failed. I'm not sure if that's because I'm behind a pretty strict firewall or something else.
Thank you for your help and pointing me in the right direction.
