I also have 7D USB trouble. However I have a work around procedure that helps in my case. Perhaps it works for you too? I had a 5DM2 and a 7D. I never had any problems with EOS utility and USB connection with any of the cameras. I switched the 5DM2 for a 5DM3. So I reinstalled all Canon software incl. EOS utility. USB connection with 5DM3 works fine. However when I connect the 7D and switch the camera on nothing happens. It does not help to start EOS utility manually. It will never connect to the camera. So this is my procedure: Connect the 7d and switch it on. The only thing that happens now is that the PC indicates by sound that a USB device has been connected. Don't touch anything, just wait. After 1-2 minutes the PC indicates by sound that a USB device has been disconnected! Now switch the camera off and on again and EOS utility works just as it should have done in the first place.

Crossfingers... I hope this one will work on mine too! Thanks Canon2 for sharing this. I'll let you know!
