I have a weird problem with usb. When I connect my MP3 or joystick everything is fine, but when I connect a memory stick or wireless lan the computer freezes and I have to do a hard reboot. If I leave the device connected then Windows hangs at the startup screen.
looks like I spoke too soon. This problem is actually on a friend's machine. I called him up last night with the solution and he told me it was OK, but this morning he found that when he plugged his WLan to the USB it wrongly detects it as an old WLan which he does not have anymore. I booted into safemode and tried to uninstall all the old wifi usb devices but it won't uninstall them. Any suggestions ???
