My System

Unknown hardware


All of a sudden whenever I turn on or restart the computer the New Hardware installer pops up. I click on the next button to see what hardware its wanting to install driver for. It says unknown hardware. I click cancel.

This didn't start until I uninstalled SuperAntiSpyware from my system. I dug out what leftovers I could find in the registry but that didn't help.

I don't know what to do now. Thanks for help.

Have you tried loading your Motherboard driver CD to see if needs to install the chipset driver or any other driver. Also check printer driver.
Any yellow question, or exclamation signs in device manager.

In device manager the only yellow ? is by other devices. I clicked on the + and it shows unknown device. Under properties > details is says:

Unknown device

In the drop down bar: Device Instance ID

and in the white box it says: Root\Legacy_SASKUTIL\0000

I have no idea what that means.

It appears to be related to the program Super Anti Spyware.

Thanks Hawk22. No more new hardware found. No more entry in the device manager.
