Sometimes power shutting the machine down by pressing and holding down the power button for about 30secs and then a restart can resolve anomalous problems.

If that doesn't work then open a Command Prompt (Admin) and enter these cmds -

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

sfc /scannow

Enter exit to close the cmd window and see if it now works.
General Computer Support / USB device not being seen by windows
« Last post by Michael22 on Today at 07:54:55 AM »

I am running WIN 10 Hone 21H2

Here is my problem

I have been using a program to download data from a device for years without any problem. I would usually connect it to my PC into a USB port and then the program would download the necessary data to analyze. I only used this program from spring to fall. So, I supposed that following some updates from windows this happen.

Lately, when I connect that device I get a window saying that I need to connect the device to my PC to a port between 1 and 64 and they explain what to do and furthermore ask me to download a specific Silicon Lab driver which by the way is already installed on my machine nothing happens even though I do that.

So I have done these tests:

1) I have used another USB cable. (nothing)
2) I have tried other USB ports on my PC, (same thing)
3) I have tried it on someone else PC  (It works fine)
4) I have uninstalled the program and reinstalled it,  (nothing has changed)
5) I have uninstalled the USB driver and reinstalled it (I get a message that the device has not migrated)
6) I have run Tweaking Pro (Same thing nothing has changed)
7) In device manager when I try to see my port even when (shown hidden devices is on), I do not see any port! (Com & LPT)
8) I have tried to install ports since they were not showing.
9) Now I have a yellow triangle next to port com 3 , if I uninstalled it windows does not reinstall it

So, what is the problem with my PC, can you help, please?

You were able to fix it?
I've found this article which may help with that error -

You can create a system repair disk to boot up with by following the instructions in this article -
I ran "ranas" multiple times and it seems to trigger "\Device\HarddiskVolume1\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\Policies\UnlockToken.pol " every run. Why you think that is?

also when running gpupdate /force it thinks I had an MDM. Even though the laptop was removed from MDM

Code: [Select]
Windows failed to apply the MDM Policy settings. MDM Policy settings might have its own log file. Please click on the "More information" link.
User Policy update has completed successfully.

For more detailed information, review the event log or run GPRESULT /H GPReport.html from the command line to access information about Group Policy results.
%temp% is per user account, right. Are there other temp folders? I cleared it, still the same error
I'm thinking that the runas error would somehow show up in procmon, no?
When you get the there isn't enough free space, it usually refers to the Temp folder being over populated.

Go Start - type %temp% and press enter.

Press CTRL and a together to highlight then CTRL and d together to delete then follow the prompts and try to do what you were trying to do.

Don't forget to empty your recycle bin.
I think Windows is confusing the volumes or whatnot. I can't create new users and running

`runas  /user:uslap200\testadmin powershell`

caused the following error

`RUNAS ERROR: Unable to run - powershell`

`112: There is not enough space on the disk.`

running with `/noprofile` works

In procmon I  see accesses to the ESP volume. I don't understand why Windows is trying to access that during runas

`5:56:03.7124886 PM   lsass.exe   904   CreateFile   \Device\HarddiskVolume1\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\Policies\UnlockToken.pol   PATH NOT FOUND   Desired Access: Read Attributes, Synchronize, Disposition: Open, Options: Synchronous IO Non-Alert, Non-Directory File, Attributes: n/a, ShareMode: Read, Delete, AllocationSize: n/a`

Why is it trying to find this `UnlockToken.pol.` Googling links it with SCCM, but we don't use SCCM here.

I'm linking the procmon log here.
