MacBook Pro with win7 USB Host controller nos starting

All of the sudden my MacBook Pro running Win 7 stopped working on 2 devices.
I open the decive manager and display hidden devices and it shows 2 "Standard Universal PCI to USB Host Controller", I check the properties and says that the device cannot start.
I have tried updating the drivers from the web and from bootcamp and has not worked, also tried uninstalling the device, then windows installs it again with the same issue.

With this happening my USB ports are not working, therefore I cannot connect to my printer, external hard drives, etc. I need help soon !  I appreciate any pointers.

Driver details:

Window/system32/drivers/usbhub.sys
Window/system32/drivers/usport.sys
Window/system32/drivers/usbuhci.sys

Yes, it works fine on OSX, so it is definitely a Win 7 driver issue.

Didnt work. windows reinstalls the drivers automatically and they fail to install. If I use the disk to reinstall the drivers from there it also fails if I use automatic reinstall, otherwise I dont know which drivers to pick from the disk.

It tried installing the following from the CD that comes with my Macbook Pro:

Intel (R) 5 Series / 3400 Chipset Family USB Universal Host Controller - 3B3B

The device cannot start. (Code 10)

Same for:

Intel (R) 5 Series / 3400 Chipset Family USB Universal Host Controller - 3B36

The device cannot start. (Code 10)

Those are the two drivers failing to start. Tried looking for updated ones on Intel's website with no luck.

Aparently there is a new version for this drivers but can't find a place to download them in intel's website.

Latest driver: Intel Chipset driver for Intel 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset, ver 9.1.1.1015

Does anyone has this driver ?

Downloaded and installed, they seemed to be the same drivers, which still fail.
