Every time Windows 7 gets any kind of update my USB drivers are wiped and I have to reinstall everything from scratch.

Have Device Manager and Disk Management open...
SM Bus Controller is not working. Delete it.
Install the Intel driver to stop the SM Bus from not working.
Windows 7 will try to install some generic junk that will not work...
Uninstall it and Install the USB controller from motherboard driver disc.
Windows 7 will detect the disc but try to tell you it's a TV...
Delete the daft thing Windows 7 has installed and use Disk Management (Action/Rescan Disks)...
The hard drive detects and is now ready to use...

Be ready, within a week, to do the whole process again with another Windows 7 update. ;)
