Assigning static designations to USB ports



I have a Netvista machine with Windows XP. Every time I restart it, the USB
port designations get shuffled. What was USB port G might be H, or J, or F
now, and the ones on the back are equally scrambled. Shortcuts no longer
work, playlists vanish if the music files are stored externally, etc.

If there is a way to assign a non-changing designation, like P and Q for the
two front ports, that would be WONDERFUL! I've spent a few hours googling,
asking, and searching for this information. Thank you!

this from the mfg web site (intel,amd,etc)..This utility gives xp the
drivers &
instructions for USB,networking port,etc..
