    I have searched endlessly for information regarding this and I cant find anything its extremely frustrating. Two months ago this setup worked without any issues on skype or other voice programs. I can use my xbox 360 wired controller on the PC no problems. When I try to plug the headset into the controller(which worked fine before) will now cause either a dcom server launcher error or plug and play error or unexpected power termination error and the computer will shut down within a minute or two. Any other information I have found regarding these errors point me to people who get this up startup constantly(which I believe ended up being spyware). I dont believe I have spyware but I could be wrong. I have done malwarebytes scans and nothing came up. I only get this when plugging in this headset into the controller. I have tried multiple headsets and they all give an error. If I start the computer with the headset plugged it wont load the user logins and will freeze at that screen.

    somethings must have changed in your system recently. it might be worth checking your recent updates (windows updates and any driver updates) it could be caused by an incompatible driver

    Prior to my malwarebytes scans I did reinstall the driver for the xbox 360 controller. I am using the official microsoft driver. I still have the same issues with it.

    What exactly would I need to be checking for in my windows updates? Got any other ideas for pinpointing this issue?

    Sounds like a power problem with the USB ports.
