usb device malfunction message

Dell / OPTIPLEX 755

Specs: Windows Vista
I have had this computer for over 6 months and had no problems printing. Two weeks ago when I went to print a page I got a message saying "One of the usb devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it." Everything has worked fine until now. I tried moving the printer cable to other usb ports with no luck and I have used different usb devices in these ports with no problems. Also, keep getting message "Windows will now finish installing software..." I've tried installing and ignoring, but ultimately same problem occurs. Any ideas?

Have you checked them for dust. I know....sound crazy but dust in the port ....does crazy things.
