old belkin hubs have had problems with some systems, drivers are available if you still want to use it, but no doubt you won't want to risk messing Windows up again! click here

i can only suggest physically removing all usb devices before removing the root hub driver in device manager. then reboot, and windows should reinstall the drivers automatically. reboot again to ensure these are loaded properly and check in device manager.
