  1. i recently had to reinstall windows on my laptop, because it refused to boot up following installation of windows updates.. after reinstalling xp, the comp boots up fine but refuses to recognize anything i plug into a usb port (with the exception of my mouse)... i tried using the driver cd that came with the comp to reinstall all the drivers for the usb ports but this doesnt seem to help... im at my wits end with this so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    also... and this may or may not be related... when you double click the IE icon on the desktop, it creates a short cut instead of opening the program...
