When I connect my phone to my PC with a USB cable, it always brings up the message "the last USB device you plugged in has malfunctioned."  If I look in the device manager when this happens, I seen an error on the device that says "This device cannot start. (Code 10). A device which does not exist was specified."

After plugging in and seeing this message, if I swipe down and tap "USB for file transfer" and tap the option "transferring images", everything connects like its supposed to.

I have USB Debugging enabled in the developer options, and when you got to "Default USB configuration" in the Developer options, "Transferring images" is selected.

So why do I still have to swipe down and tell it to use that mode to get everything to work? It should be defaulted to that mode. Also, why doesn't "transferring files" work?

I have the "Samsung Mobile USB Composite" drivers installed.  Phone is completely up to date.  I already cleared the System cache, and this did not work.
