    This solution was posted on http:\\forums.techguy.org in response to my
    request for help in this matter.
    The first solution worked for me. However, I didn't have LowerFilters in
    0000 and 0001. Also, the correct key on my computer was:
    {4D36E967-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} I think the extra two B's on his post
    is an error. Here is the link to the entire thread:

    I am hoping he will reply to my last post to explain more about what
    LowerFilters are, why they caused the problem and why removing them solved
    it. However, if anyone here knows what LowerFilters are, I would love to
    find out.

    1. Open the Registry Editor. (Click Start and Run regedit.exe)

    2. Go to the key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E967-E325-11C
    E-BBBFC1
    -08002BE10318}

    3. Right click the above key, choose Export and save the file as backup.reg.

    4. Delete the LowerFilters value in the right panel. (NOTE: Under the key,
    there
    are also some sub keys such as 0000, 0001. Please double click them and
    delete the
    LowerFilters value.)

    5. Restart the computer.

    If this still does not work, please perform a Clean Boot to narrow down the
    problem.

    1. Click Start, and click Run msconfig. The System Configuration Utility
    appears.

    2. In the General tab, click Selective Startup.

    3. Uncheck the processing options that are listed below Selective Startup
    except "Load System Services."

    4. Click Apply, and then click Close.

    5. Restart the computer and test if the issue persists.
