This problem has been on the laptop (Siemens Amilo Pro with Windows XP Home)for some time now, everytime it loads up a Windows has detected new hardware screen comes up saying something called winio, you can't ever get it to find the software for this thing, whatever winio is so hence its there everytime computer comes on. I tried tonight to system restore, only it came back saying it couldn't be restored to what ever date I tried, so I thought I'd try safe mode, only when I clicked on safe mode option it just kept flashing up a blue screen for a second then going back to the same screen asking me to select safe mode again. I think this must be some virus, nothing came up though with AVG.

Anyone any suggestions.
