Tried to install a new HP P1505 USB printer.  Would load and go offline when powered off but wouldn't print.  Sent that one back "DOA".  Got 2nd P1505 and same issue.  Now I'm thinking USB ports.  Tried printer on another PC and works fine !

Tried deleting USB DOT4 & USB Virtual port and they won't go aways.  Tried removing any other printers that had USB ports.  Even tried server properties / ports / delete but same results.

Found resource that advised if printer is deleted the USB ports would be removed.  UGH can't make that happen.

Any ideas.

Try this :

then run :   devcon enable @usb\*
OR :
Remove all USB drivers with:     https://filedb.experts-exchange.com/incoming/ee-stuff/6853-RENEWUSB.zip      ---> Now reboot and test.
Delete the "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" registry values from:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{36FC9E60-C465-11CF-8056-444553540000}
you can also reset the usb :
