What are your USB devices? Mem Card Reader, Kybd, Mouse, Game Controller, Joy Stick got a button stuck?
Something plugged into a USB port is probably bad. My guess is memory card reader that plugs directly into the mother bd.

Wireless controller joy stick actions have reversed on the right joy stick, so when your on COD 2 and you want to raise your rifle, when you push the joy stick up the rifle is now depresssing instead of...

You or one of your mates has inverted your controller, I am not familiar with the game, you need to get on the startup screen of the game, select options, then controller, then swop the invertion, if this was one of your mates it makes a change from swopping the language to chinese.

How can I use joy stick as a mouse? I already have the driver for the joystick but can not chose it in the mouse/pointer properties

Yes you can. All you need is a software. There are many available like Xpadder, Joy2key, Pinnacle game profiler (you have to buy it), and for logitech joysticks, theres the logitech game profiler.
I have a Logitech Rumblepad 2 so I am familiar with Logitech game profiler and I help people by making profiles for their games.

To use a joystick as mouse in Windows, I have read that Xpadder and Pinnacle work. Other profilers dont work. Pinnacle costs money so you can try Xpadder. I dont know anything about that but you can read on the net how to set that up.

Y-axis non-fuctioning

check here:

grab the Logitech Gaming software 5.02 (I used the 64bit, make sure you grab the correct one!).

Note, I have a logitech MX 518 gaming mouse, and after installing the above, I could no longer use my button assignments in any games. The mouse functioned like an old 2 button mouse. I have a feeling there is some conflict between the mouse software/driver and the logitech software/driver.
