pci hardware found

  fourchon 15:26 21 Dec 2010

I was using a friends PC today when a message appeared new hardware found, the add new hardware wizard came up - pci hardware. I hadn't done anything, when I asked my friend what has been added, she said that it has been like that 'forever'
Any ideas next time I am around there to investigate this further.

Check in Device Manager for an item with a question mark.

Right click each one - uninstall.

When unistall all with question marks then

Action - scan for new hardware and see what gets reinstalled.
