    If your PC is on a domain (typically a work network) the
    administrators may have following this MS virus alert KB
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/962007 which stops WMDC dead and
    windows mobile phones do not install when connected with USB. There
    are many discussions about this problem around, but non seem to have
    this solution)

    The trick to fix this is, open Regedit.

    Right click and select properties on HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT
    \CurrentVersion

    Select Owner: TrustedInstaller. Change TrustedInstaller permissions:
    Full Control & Read, not inherited

    Next right click and select properties on HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft
    \Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SvcHost
    Select Owner: System

    Change TrustedInstaller permissions: Full Control & Read, inherited
    from CurrentVersion

    (Actually in the end I changed all permissions in these 2 to Full
    Control & Read)

    Save your work and reboot

    Now connect your windows mobile phone via USB and with any luck WMDC
    will download (even if it installed) and the phone will connect.

    Good Luck
