Where are the INFCACHE.1, infstor.dat, infstrng.dat files
Like always Windos has its problems with drivers, it's fine, we get it.
In Windows 7 easy workaround was available - rename the INFCACHE.1, infstor.dat and infstrng.dat files (which are located in /Windows/System32/DriverStore folder), restart machine and it will force Windows to rebuild them.
BUT now I've installed Windows 8 and those files are gone. So what should we do now?

i found an answer on google of deleting the "drivers" files in "C:\Windows\System32\config". before i start deleting like crazy i'm hoping someone can chime in and tell me another way of fixing usb detection problems? as op said, in vista and win 7 deleting
infcache.1 was the fix.
