    Since i Installed the New Jellybean 4.3 on my Galaxy S3 Device i can't connect it for tethering to my Laptop(WinXP) or Desktop(Win 7 32bit) anymore.
    When its connected to the computer it says

    Device attached has malfunction and and windows doesn't recognize the file.

    Uninstall the driver for that device (find it in device manager). Then install the driver directly from SAMSUNG_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_Phones

    If that doesn't fix it, count it as another bug in the 4.3 update. Take the phone to your carrier and tell them that your computer no longer recognizes the phone since the update, so you can't back anything up, so you want the update removed. (Since one of the most important things with ANY computer is the ability to make backups of important data.) DO NOT mention tethering to them, unless you're paying for tethering. Some carriers don't want you to tether (or don't want you to tether without paying extra) and won't help you if you are.
