February 27th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

A small utility that lists all USB devices currently connected to your computer, as well as the history of USB devices attached.
Extended information like Device name/description, device type, serial number (for mass storage devices), the date/time that device was added, VendorID, ProductID are also displayed.
The devices which are currently connected are shown in green.
You can individually uninstall & reinstall faulty drivers.


USBDeview allows you to execute exe/cmd/bat file whenever a USB device is inserted to your system. In order to use this feature, go to ‘Options->Advanced Options’, select the ‘Execute..’ check-box, and type the exe/cmd file that you want to run.Use this option to make your Antivirus software to scan the Mass storage device to avoid the chance of virus infections in an effective way.

Consider this situation:
You bought a generic usb thumb drive which worked fine on your newer machines, but you wanted to use it on an old Win98 system. Lacking a Win98 driver, it is difficult. Then use USBDeview to find the vendor code of the generic drive, look on their web site, you may find a Win98 driver for some of their name brand drives.

OS : Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista. Windows 98/ME is not supported
