right click on "my computer" and select manager
click on "device manager"
find you usb hub right click and unistall
along the top click on scan for hardware changes (small computer icon)
and windows should find it, and the wizard will walk you through the installation process
at the point were u select a driver, ensure you do not select "keep current driver"
I did already tried it that way but still it freezes up. I could not take it anymore and reinstall xp. Luckily i had dual boot with win 7 so i could copy my info from xp to win7. Thanks anyway. Don't have patients with struggling.
