Wipe & reload? If that doesn't resolve I'd say you need to replace the motherboard.

What devices do you have on that port group?

Back ports and front ports? Both stop?

My 10cents worth:

 

I run lots of USB devices on my PC's.

 

Win7 very stable.

 

Win8 VERY Unstable - gave up!

 

Win10 Quite stable.

 

All hardware / drivers Win10 etc certified.

 

Win10 is getting there and is a hell of a lot better than Win8 but nowhere near Win7 for stability.

 

That is mine and others I know experience!

 

It MAY not be the motherboard.

If you reboot without the uninstall - does it work again?

Also need a list of devices you are using on that port when the port dies.

Try disabling USB sleep in both Power Options and driver properties (Device Manager).

Update BIOS firmware if available.
