    devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices shows you devices that are not connected when you click on Show hidden devices. They don't show otherwise.

    Ah, that is good to know. I skipped that part and somehow Windows showed me some greyed out devices which I uninstalled. I'll add the environment variable and see what else shows up. Thanks again. I think we are making some progress here. I was able to reboot after removing the thumb drive without pressing the reset button.

    I'm still not making any progress on this. Thanks for everyone's contributions so far. Any other ideas folks?
