Windows 10 USB Always Showing Code 28

#1
So as of very recently, none of my USB drivers have been working. Plugging in lets say my phone will charge it, but it wont be recognized as a device attached. After some playing around in my device manager, I see that my phone has the message "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)" in the device details. Ok simple enough, I have it check for updates, but to no avail. OOOOOOK, so I check to see if the USB drivers are up to date, and they are. I try several more USB devices like flash drives and my garmin watch and they all have the same code. I then did a lot of googling and I couldnt seem to find someone who has the quite the same issue. I did find a temporary fix by rebooting with Driver Signature Enforcement disabled but I'm looking for a more permanent fix, if one exists.
I'm running an up-to-date Windows 10 on a Lenovo Y50 that is less than a year old
My USB Controllers listed on my device manager are:
Generic USB Hub

code 28 is just no driver or wrong driver found
