    Hmm, it seems I applied following How to Fix the Critical BadUSB Security Flaw in Less than 10 Minutes
    Avoid automatic USB installation
    Another option to keep your system safe from the BadUSB vulnerability is to disable the automatic installation of new USB devices.


    Therefore, go to the same location as above and follow these steps:


    1. Double click Prevent installation of removable devices and Enable it.


    2. Double click Allow administrators to override Device Installation Restrictions policies and Enable it.


    In this case, we need to underline that if you want to install a removable device in the future, you will need to do it with Administrative rights.
    But I don't want to remove that policy, so how do I manually install this new USB?
    EDIT problem solved I'd forgot to enable that override policy,
    enabled > then went to device properties > then update driver

    You will see this if a Group Policy has been configured to prevent installing a USB device. This is typically found on work PCs to reduce the risk of data theft.

    ...so how do I manually install this new USB?


    If this is a work PC with a group policy in place then you should contact your IT department who should have the rights to install such a device, or to approve the device so you can install it.
