    Update disabled USB Ports.

    Windows 10 USB 3.0 Ports got Disabled after a recent failed update try.
    KB3081438 which downloads, but fails to install [HERE]

    The ports are powered since i can connect my mobile to the 'disabled' ports and yet charge the device but cannot do any data transfer. But the USB 2 Port works fine without any problems. And this only happens in Windows since i tried booting using a live linux USB and it worked just fine, so this is a software issue with windows and I need to figure it out.

    // I have already tried the basics like checking the settings in Device manager/Uninstalling the device and rebooting and other common trouble shooting tips form the net. Since there are no relevant solutions for windows 10 Problems yet on the net this is a place to start. //

    Solved : Resolved the issue by manually Installing the Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller all ports working fine now.
    Step 2 : Go to Device manager -> System Devices -> eXtensible Host Controller and Update that. That will fix that.
