Strange problem when I connected a powered USB Hub

  1. I ran out of USB ports, so I went in for a powered USB hub.

    One by one, all the USB ports went out of action, and then windows (XP) would not boot normally.

    That was quite a scare.

    I detached all devices attached to the USB ports and ran Device Cleaner (thanks to Lookin)

    The PC began to boot normally, and all but one USB came alive.

    Any explanation?
