    I just bought a PS Vita that I cannot seem to update to 3.60. I am currently running 3.36. Everytime I try to connect I get an error stating "could not connect to PC".

    I have tried uninstalling QCMA, rebooting the Vita, restarting my PC, reinstalling QCMA (I have tried all three drivers) and I still always get the same message. There is also a strange issue in which I cannot uninstall PS Vita Type B driver manually from Device Manager and I cannot shut down or restart PC after opening QCMA. I also cannot end the QCMA.exe process using Task Manager, I have to hard reset my PC.

    I have also tried the following:

    -Used CCleaner after uninstall of QCMA
    -Used Revo Uninstaller to clear QCMA and all traces
    -Tried different USB ports
    -Tried fixing drivers using Zadig
    -Running QCMA as administrator

    I have another PS Vita I had updated previously and I do not recall running into any issues. Does anyone have any advise to get this updated installed or an alternative to QCMA? Any help is appreciated.

    Okay it looks like I am due for a fresh install of Windows. I just attempted this on my other PC and it worked without a hitch.
