I have been using my Blue Snowball for over a month now (bought new) and I was just using it a half hour ago, when suddenly Windows 10 refuses to recognize my mic. I tried opening Device Manager and uninstalling the "Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed)" to no avail.

My mic still lights up and is noticed by my computer, so nothing seems to be wrong with my microphone. I even tried rebooting 2 times. And I tried switching USB ports, thinking the USB port might have been messed with. Could someone help me fix this problem?
 
There seems to be a lot of these kinds of problems cropping up lately. This might be the explanation:

Have you installed the W10 Anniversary Update?

I did download the update recently. Weird that it would cause my device to stop working after it had been working fine until then with no signals. I will try to go back then.

Uh.....I haven't made a restore point until now... Doing a clean install would still choose the Anniversary Update as my choice automatically... Is there anything I can do?
