    I did not rate the support help, because it did not solve the problem.

    I took the following steps:

    I uninstalled the Chicony USB 2.0 driver software that was on my computer, and reinstalled that sme driver from the Toshiba Satellite P205-S6307 Application Recovery Disk. It Reported the same error message as indicated above.

    I maid contact with the Toshiba Satellite Team and reported the problem. They suggested the same steps that you proposed, and as exspected the result were the same as above.

    Because the application is installed on Microsoft Windows Vista, I contacted Microsoft Vista Team, they referred me back to Toshiba Satellite Team to resolve the problem.

    I contacted Chicony Inc., they suggested I Uninstall and reinstalled.

    Could you suggest a Windows Software Compatability tool I could use to track down the offending sofware application I suspect that is corrupting the Chicony USB 2.0 .INF file that was written for Windows 95 or later?

I have the same problem with the drivers for the USB Hub in this laptop! Guess what? It's a TOSHIBA Satellite L305-S5919. Wonder if there is a Glitch with the TOSHIBA USB System. I have Vista Ultimate and at every startup, it asks to install the driver for the HUB. This is driving me nuts. I'm about ready to install my extra copy of XP and say to heck with anything newer! Anyone stumble on a fix for this?
