Default usb malfunctioning

Starting this morning, the usb sound has been going off constantly.

Every time a dialog box pops up saying: usb devices not recognized, one or more devices appears to be malfunctioning.......

I can click that and it list all my usb devices, the one in bold is the one causing the problems. All it says is unknown device. Ive clicked it and disabled it, also have tried uninstalling it lots of times, but the sound keeps going off and it still keeps popping up.
I have unplugged all usb devices, the only thing plugged in now is the mouse.
There is not any errors showing up in device manager.
I have tried rebooting twice.

the location of the port is #0004 hub #0001 is there anyway to completely disable so windows doesn't even look at it or try to re install it?

several months ago my nic port was hit my a surge and smoked it, been running with a nic card ever since, wounder if this could have weaken the motherboard

thanks john
