Did you move it to a different USB port? Sometimes that can mess things up because windows is looking in the wrong place for it. If it's in the same as when you first installed it, move it to different ports to see if windows can see it somewhere else. If you haven't done it yet, try starting without it plugged in and see if windows finds it then.

I had a USB network adapter on a laptop that I had to leave unplugged until windows fully loaded or windows would disable the USB port until I restarted.

It seems to be okay now. The computer crashed earlier (Memory Management).

What fun!

Did you ask the store if this computer was haunted before you purchased it?

Either it's haunted or it's possessed. Does anyone know a good Windows 10 exorcism?

Place your hand on top and shout THE POWER OF GATES COMPELS YOU! BE-GONE, DAEMONS!

Failing that, a powerful electromagnet should do the trick. Of course, it'll also "exorcise" anything else within a few feet

Don't forget to throw a penguin holding an apple at it while exorcising it
