Please bare with me as I am a noob. I have had Ubuntu 10.10 for a year with no problems and completely love it... two days ago I did my latest updates through update manager and now my USB ports do not work... I use a mouse because my trackpad is terrible.

The mouse lights up, so it has power, but it will not move. I've tried my printer and phone as well to no avail. Any tips would be greatly appreciated...

After typing tail -f /var/log/kern.log in the terminal, it repeatedly says "unable to enumerate USB device on port 1" over and over again... sudo lsusb shows my mouse.
