Windows10 stopped recognising Arduino after update to Win10 build 19041

I was using Arduino Uno clone along with the Arduino IDE on my Windows 10 Dell Laptop without any issue.The Arduino Uno was showing up as virtual com port on device manager.

I updated my Windows 10 to Windows10 build 19041,After which the Windows10 stopped detecting the Arduino UNO and it start to appear under the device Manager as unknown device.

I reinstalled the Arduino IDE and still the device comes as unknown device.

I disabled Windows 10 driver signing mode and reinstalled the Arduino IDE and still the device comes as unknown device.

I also have a FT232RL based USB to Serial converter which shows up on Device Manager without any issues.

When i tried to update the * unkown device* driver and point to Arduino driver folder .The windows gives the following error message ("The Plug and Play service is not available on the remote machine"):

I also have a Arduino nano with CH430 chip ,This one is also having the same issue when i tried to install the drivers

Any ideas on How to solve it ?

All installation was done after disabling Win10 driver signing option.

I was afraid of that. When you upgraded, had it been a while since your previous upgrade if ever?

I just went through this. I have a long list of fixes but you probably won't like the one you land on last so try the others first. Here's my thread on it:
Slow compile times with Windows 10 build 19042 - Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting - Arduino Forum

Feel free to ask if you need help applying any of the fixes in the list.

Thank you for taking interest in my post.

I have solved the problem.It was mistake from my own part.

I have disabled some of the hardware detection services before the update.

I have disabled the "Device Install Service" on the windows Service

renabling it and rebooting it solved the problem.
