Right click them and uninstall.

Action scan for new hardware and see if they return.

Mass storage controller sounds like you ar plugging in an external drive
PCI simple Communication device is usually a dial up modem but I also have see a sound card show up as this before I pointed it to the right drivers

I have a yellow exclamation in Mass Storage Device, I think I have narrowed it down to a mobile phone for which there are no drivers for Windows 7
It does no harm so I would just ignore it

Fruit Bat /\0/\ -

Uninstalled both then both returned.

I did a Found Hardware Wizard - The Hardware was not installed because the Wizard cannot find the necessary software.

Cannot Update Drivers too.

No External Hard Drive plugged in for some time now

Dialup Modem I don't use any more though it is still there.

I'm not sure if I have the original CD no do I know where the software is on my computer

Fruit Bat /\0/\ - I have Windows XP Pro

Thanks
