Hi everybody, since 3-4 weeks when I start my laptop I do receive a message saying that a new harware (Base) has been found and it starts to try to get it installed on my pc. After 3-4 attempts it says that it cannot be installed because the pc didn't found the program. Unfortnatley since I got this problem my pc slowed down dramatically. Plus I got a bug that is sending message to the all the contacts I have in my address book. I run the Avira antivirus and it found no problem. What can I do to locate the new hadrwrae and get rid of it? Thanks in advance fabrizio
