Help Please I Have A Compaq And I Bought A Mfc685cw All In One Brother I Am Having A Problem When It Reads New Software Found And It SearchES FOR THE USB An Error Message Says That Cannot Install Hardware There Might Be A PROBLEM With My Hardware. I Called Everyone And Searched But My Pc Did Not Come With A Disk And In Device Manager There Is A Yellow Question Mark By The USB Device. If I Cant Install ThIs Machine Can You Recommend One With The Handset At Around A $200.00 Range?

Open the Control Panel > Folder Options > View and check "show hidden files and folders".

Now the directory c:\windows\INF should be viewable.

You say you have a problem with "USB.inf"

See if it is present and accounted for in that folder.

Other USB files that should be in that directory are usbstor.inf, usbprint.inf

There is a copy of USB.inf in this attachment link, just download and unzip it and copy it to the INF folder if you need it.

That's odd -- but just open up "Explorer" or "My Computer" and select "Tools > Folder Options > Vew" from there.

If you still cannot find it there may be a Security policy disabling it.

If that is the case, run regedit and navigate to the keys shown below:

User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
Explorer]

System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
Explorer]


>>> In the right pane, look for the value "NoFolderOptions" as shown below, and right click on it and delete it and then reboot


Name: NoFolderOptions
Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value: (0 = show options, 1 = hide options)


>> To unzip a file that has a .zip extension, just right click on it and select "Extract all" from the right click menu.
