Hardware Wizard

I have been trying to add some hardwear, but the wizard says that I can only install one device at a time, another device installation is underway.
I am not installing anything else, so how do I clear the wizard please.

Ctrl+Alt+Del see what is running stop the item that you say is running

Thanks woodchip, I do not have anything running in applications and the only thing running in processes is 'system idle process' at 95%

'system idle process' at 95%

That is normal.

Then try a System Restore to a older date. Do not go too far back as you may loose updates. after the above you will need to check for updates

Thanks both, I will try system restore to see if it works.
