    Hello, starting today out of the blue, my USB device driver can't detect my USB device. I am getting error messages saying, Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43). It also tells me, the device driver software was not installed correctly but, I have been using a USB adapter for my phone to my laptop for a few months now and never had to install any software or any problems in the first place. I just, plug it into the USB port and go.

    What should I do? Uninstall the USB device driver and re-install it

    Please help?
