Why do we have to restart Windows PC after performing 'Disable device' of USB eXtensible Host controller?

I have 2 windows 10 machines in which I'm performing 'Disable device' of USB eXtensible Host controller.
In one machine I see immediate effect, device gets disabled and other machine needs to be restarted to take effect.

My question is why is it 2 machines are behaving differently and is there any way we can 'Disable device' without PC restart?

    May be some differences in the firmware, hardware or drivers.
