Unknown device driver problem

I have one unknown device that Device Manager is showing but i can't find what device this is. Clicking on device properties doesn't show anything, only "Unknown device". I run scan with SlimDrivers and Driver Genius but they didn't find any missing drivers. I also use windows xp installation CD and tried to update the device from it but it didn't find drivers there.

How to find what device this is?

  1. Are you using any usb connected devices?
  2. Only mouse.
  3. Laptop Toshiba Satellite A205-S5812.

    Is it possible this to be false notification? I don't think i have missing driver otherwise the driver scan programs that i used would detect it.
  4. What's the device's Hardware ID? (Details tab for the device properties)
  5. Best answer
    That's a leftover from Superantispyware. The uninstaller doesn't always remove all the pieces. Your best bet is to reinstall SAS then uninstall it again.
  6. Thanks! I actually uninstalled SuperAntiSpyware recently but didn't know that this unknown device could be related to it.

    By the way, is there sites where can i check for driver information by hardware id's?
  7. Just google the ID
