Default problem with updating USB drivers-help appreciated

Hi,

I updated my motherboard's chipset driver and after rebooting I got this little MS-DOS screen saying 'updating USB-drivers, please wait...'.
But it got stuck on that screen (I waited for about 5 mins or so), I then had to hit the reset button to reboot.
I tried again (first re-installed the chipset drivers, thne rebooted), but same thing, MS DOS screen saying updating USB drivers got stuck.

What could be wrong here?
Should I try doing this in safe mode?
Or do I need to unplug everuthing that's connected to a USB port when doing this?
The latter might be a bit of a problem, since my mouse is connected to a USB port.

I'd appreciate any kind of help here.

Thanks,
Lars

Try a restore point. It probably didn't install correctly. Also can look in Event Viewer.
