Default USB Problem

Hi there,

I have had my advent laptop since march of last year and have had no problems at all. It has 4 x 2.0 USB connections on the side, now all of a sudden they have decided not to work. I have an external HD and USB mouse that are almost always connected. When I tried to connect them today my laptop jams up, which I find very weird. Whenever I try to insert a drive of some kind it jams, whereas when I try to connect my optical mouse its okay, it just dosnt work (even though the red optical laser lights up). I tried reinstalling drivers on both but this dosnt do anything. Any ideas?

All help appreciated.


EDIT - I have tried both of these on my other computer and they work fine. Also, it is now telling me that my USB device has malfunctioned.

Sometimes Viruses disable things just to annoy you, once I had a virus that would set my screensaver to 587 minutes (I had to keep setting it back to 10 which was annoying)

What anti-virus program do you have if any?
