Avast! Internet Security and loss of usb ports
« on: January 03, 2013, 10:02:28 AM »
I was using avast! Internet Security with Windows 8 Pro on a laptop successfully (for approximately 3 weeks) until I experienced the often reported miniport driver problem.

Shortly after noticing the miniport problem I had problems with devices connected to my USB 2.0 & 3.0 ports. Resolving the miniport driver issues and rebooting did not resolve the problem my USB ports.

Even uninstalling Avast! Internet Security and reinstalling only resolved the problem for a couple of hours.

I uninstalled Avast! a week ago and I've not had any problems with my USB devices since.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Hi Zonko,

Actually i also faced the same problem which you have faced.
i installed avast internet showed my laptop is secured.
After that yesterday i have tried to connect internet via USB. While i connect, that drive was not detected.i felt my usb driver problem than again i tried to uninstall the avast antivirus.finally i uninstalled avast from my laptop.
Do you find any solution for the problem which is unblock USB driver with avast internet security?
