Hi Steve,

Thanks for posting here! The Plugable 10 Port USB 2.0 Hub is a standard USB 2.0 Hub that does not need any third party drivers as the hub drivers are integrated in the operating system.

At a high level, this hub is matched to the proper drivers in \windows\inf\usb.inf and the main driver loaded to control the hub is \windows\system32\drivers\usbhub.sys.Both of these are Microsoft-provided system files.

The first thing to check when Windows is showing an error saying that the drivers are missing is whether these two files are present.

The easiest way to fix the issue is to copy these files from another system running Windows 7 to the right directory in this system.

If you do not have access to another Windows 7 system, just shoot us an email at support@plugable.com with a link to this thread and your Amazon Order ID. We will send usb.inf file from our Windows 7 system.

If that does not fix the issue, then it would be best to reinstall Windows.

Regards,
Roze
