System info:Pentium III running Windows Me. After trojan infection these USB devices show malfunction (error codes 10 and 2), even with trojan eliminated. I uninstalled and reinstalled them but the manager keeps refering problems.What should I do?

Tell me about the motherboard chipset drivers you installed.

Microsoft doesn't do this for us. Tell me which you installed after this infection.

I reinstalled automatically from the drivers originally found in the HD. Thank you for your help

Why not try non-automatic?

That is, find the driver package for your mainboard and install that?

Remember that the OS and what's on the drive is suspect. Bob

Where are those error codes?

I assume hidden behind the yellow exclamation mark in Device Manager. That shows that you didn't install all the right drivers.

Some virus caused damage can most easily be undone by a clean reinstall of the whole OS (after a format of the c:-partition). That's not to say that that's easy, of course.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
