USB Mouse not working in XP SP3

If you plug in USB Mouse and getting hid class error complaining about some windows 95 incompatible INF, here is the fix

1. Open %windir%\inf folder (Must show hidden files)
2. Backup and delete these files:

- INFCache.1
- msmouse.pnf
- input.pnf

3. Open a command line and run
Net stop Cryptsvc
4. Backup and delete this folder “%windir%\system32\catroot2”
5. Reboot the computer to make sure the information was clean up.
6. Insert USB mouse to another port which hasn’t been used before.
