When see in device manager it shows a yellow mark on the device and the device status shows an error code (Code 43) see
I have tried 3 different USB drives and a USB scanner but same result. All works fine at the back ports.
Kindly help.

If it is only one front port then it is possible that there is a physical problem with the port itself. If it is two or more ports then it is not the port but something else.
If the front ports are run through an internal hub then it is a problem with the hub or its driver in the system so as mentioned, delete the hub or port in Device manager without deleting the software, then restarting the machine to 'discover' and reinstall the device. If this does not work then go to the manufacture's web site (system mfg or board mfg) and download the latest drivers starting with the chipset driver and looking for anything else related to the USB ports, USB expansion chip, or USB hub and install.
The final possibility is with the cable from the front ports to the motherboard that have come partially loose or rubbed through and are grounding on the chassis somewhere.

And don't forget that just restarting the machine may fix many small problems that creep up over time. Windows 10 does something different from earlier versions in that it tries to save many states when shut down and started BUT when you invoke the "Restart" option, these are forgotten so when we refer to restarting, we do NOT mean shutting down and starting up again. Use the Restart option in he 'Start' options menu.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
