USB Power Surge

HI iv'e noticed with the 6 usb plugs they tend to get power surge's there for it's like unpluging & reinserting usb devices non stop, then the pc reinstalls drivers over and over...exreamly frustrating if you using a usb mouse or have a HUB conected.
theres a few post about on the net that people with this motherboard are experiencing the same problems and with no reply or help from MSI.
is there anything that can be done to solve this problem (besides introducing the pc to a hammer!)

Unplug the usb receiver as well as all other usb devices plugged in. Unplug your desktop from the power outlet. While unplugged, press and hold the power button for around 10 seconds to drain the power. Plug the power back but not the usb devices. See if it now boots up.

Lower rear usb,s not working

If powering the computer off / on does not reset them, then no, they are physically damaged. If you need more ports, a USB hub is your best bet. I would get a powered hub as them provide better support as you add devices.

One option is to install a board into your PCI slot. It will give you a few USBs in the back, and most models have internal connector so you can reconnect the front ones to the PCI card instead of the mobo.

Surge Protector

Surge Protectors are devices that usually you plug your equipment to.. and it protects it from Voltage Spikes that would otherwise destroy the device without it.. saddly not all Surge Protectors are the sam.. some are completely useless..

If you are really serious about protecting your PC not just the hardware but also the data and your work.. might as well invest on a UPS(Uninterrupted Power Supply) unit.. it has everything a surge protector can offer and more..
