Windows 7 wireless adapter and USB controller starts disabled every time I boot

Every time I boot my machine I have to disable and enable the wireless adapter and USB controller to get them to work.

I have updated the Drivers, removed the hardware and reinstalled it.  Updated my bios.
I tried to re-install Windows 7 to do a repair after system repair didn't work and it get's stuck at 72% for hours (I think it was 6 hours).  

I booted the machine with a live CD and the hardware is functioning properly.

Does anyone have any suggestions before I do a rebuild?

They start disabled.  Windows can not start the driver.  

Windows doesn't have an issue finding the hardware.  The USB controller and wireless adapter start disabled.

This device can not start (Code 10)
Windows did not start a related device driver. To learn more, click the Driver tab and then click Driver Details.


If I re-install the driver....the devices work until the next reboot and then they do not start.

The devices worked fine when I boot Ubuntu 10.4 Live.

The Code 10 error it's explain here from Microsoft: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310123

The problem it's the Driver. Intel know issues on Windows 7 x64 Operating Systems and recommend to use the automatic detect.

First, please unistall the wireless device on Device Manager (also all USB controller) and reboot your System.
Go here: http://www.intel.com/support/detect.htm?iid=gg_support-EN_01+home_detect
and Intel install rigths driver for you.

Try and let me know

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Same result with the Auto detect program.  When I reboot the computer after the new driver has been installed, the devices do not start.   I've just tried 4 different times to uninstall and reinstall with that auto detect program.

Stuff found in Event Viewer:

System
Source: Kernal-Pnp
Event ID 219
The driver \Driver\libusb0 failed to load for the device SW\{eeab7790-c514-11d1-b42b-00805fc1270e}\asyncmac.


A lot of incompatibility Error Messages:
\SystemRoot\SysWow64\drivers\libusb0.sys has been blocked from loading due to incompatibility with this system. Please contact your software vendor for a compatible version of the driver.

I'm going to re-install with Dell drivers again I suppose.  It is a Latitude E6500.

I was never able to get it to work with either new driver, including the last message.  However, I was finally able to get it to work after performing a system restore from within the booted OS instead of running the system restore (repair) from the Windows install boot cd.

I will still award the points for your assistance.  Thanks!
