Running WinXP, I have a Lacie USB HD which prevents (by some bug) starting and terminating of applications on my computer when I plug it in, and so I'm not able to uninstall the device driver. How can I reinstall the drivers? Thanks!

Try USB Oblivion or USBDeview. – Karan Nov 10 '12 at 22:32
@Karan: Thanks, if you suggest UDB Oblivion as an answer I'll mark it as the correct answer! – Jonas Byström Nov 12 '12 at 11:35

USBOblivion should be able to help in such situations:

USBOblivion is a utility designed to erase all traces of USB-connected drives and CD-ROMs from the registry in Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7 32/64-bit versions. The utility has a test mode of operation, i.e. without actually removing data from the registry, and, just in case, creates a .reg-file to undo any changes. There is also a fully automatic mode.
