Every USB device plugged in isn't automatically installed
All devices previously plugged in and working have ceased being recognized by
Windows Vista x64.

What is the solution so that I won't have to point to "driverstore"
everytime I unplug a usb device that was functioning and plug it in again

SYMPTOMS of PROBLEM:

Whenever a usb device is plugged in, a prompt is displayed allowing 3 choices:

-Locate and install driver software (recommended)
-Ask me again later
-or Don't show message again

After selecting Locate and install, I eventually have to point it to
%root%/windows/system32/driverstore

This method is:
-a waste of my time
-never happened before the last few days
-installs generic/wrong drivers

This problem first appeared after my Corsair 4 gb flash drive was recognized
as an "embedded hub" and the drivers couldn't be found.

Hi Brian,

See if the "Cumulative update rollup for USB core components in Windows
Vista" will help resolve the issue.
Article and link to download the hotfix 941600 is at
