  • Windows installs unknown device at startup

    Hi

    This problem began recently. Windows installs an unknown device at startup. I checked all my hardwares and they are functioning properly and I haven't installed any new hardware.

    Thanks

    I presume you have let it search the internet for drivers?

    Have you tried disabling the unknown device in device manager? See if performance is affected and if not, leave it disabled
