you tried to delete the infcache.1 file?
Try this fix to see if it repairs your problem, Before Posting. This
solution has worked for
some people with problematic USB and General Devices:
1. Locate the file INFCACHE.1 in C:\Windows\inf
2. Right click on the INFCACHE.1 file, select Properties >Security > Edit,
and give your account full control.
3. Delete INFCACHE.1 (Or just to be safe, rename it to INFCACHE.1.BAK or
temporarily move to your desktop but you shouldn't need to, windows doesn't
need that file to run, and if it needs to it recreates it).

A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely
foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.
