Plug & Play devices cause freezing on being plugged in

Ghost devices (things that are plugged in and out regular can be installed several times in device manager sometimes this causes conflicts.

Either use the View menu and click show hidden devices and uninstall all hidden devices or use USB DEVICE View to uninstall all disconnected devices.

Windows will reinstall them next time you plug in but should do so with no difficulty, as there will no longer be any other instances of the device to conflict with.
