    I downloaded an Iobit Driver Booster to update my drivers because my mouse was corrupted after upgrading my computer. The booster has downloaded probably foreign trash and has messed up my USB ports. I can no longer control the computer with my mouse and keyboard nor have I made a restore point.

    I'm using a Windows 7 Home Premium.

    Hi, the best policy is to only update drivers that you need at any given time.
    Letting any driver update program update all drivers can cause the problem you are having, as outdated drivers may be installed.

    Can you use the keyboard and mouse in Safe Mode - Safe Mode with Networking?
    Tap F8 as the pc is starting up to reach Safe Mode.
    ======
    See if you can find a restore point in Safe Mode.
    Tap F8 as your system is starting up.
    Start > Run > Type
    msconfig

    Click Launch System Restore.
    Then choose a date prior to the problem.

    I've done it in 'repair your computer option'

    The only problem left is that my computer can't find updated drivers which allows me to smoothly use my mouse and scroll wheel. The missing driver also disables my front USB port.

    What is the make and model number of your pc?
    Always go to the manufacturers website and check for any needed drivers there.

    When you say pc, can you be a bit more specific?

    Mine is custom built so I don't know the make and model, but I do know the make and model of the components that were installed into it.

    If it is a custom build I have no way of knowing what parts are installed.
    Have you checked if there are any mouse driver updates online?

    Also have you installed the latest Windows updates?
