Windows Hardware Wizard annoyance

  Rogmur 18:19 26 Dec 06

Hello to all Forum Members

Hope all had a good Xmas.

I have been trying to use a new 512MB USB Flash
Drive and I am running WinXP (SP2).

However, all I keep getting is the "Welcome to the Found New Hardware Wizard".

As you all know with Win XP you do not need any Device Drivers to use a USB 2 Flash Drive.

I have also tried using another USB Flash Drvie (128MB) but the same problem appears.

If I click "Next" in Found New Hardware Wizard,
the system them then reports; "Cannot Install This Hardware".

Has anyone any idea what is going on? Is it a virus??

I would be grateful for any advice.

Kind regards

Plug the device in and then goto device manager and check for any yellow exclaimation marks..if so,uninstall these and reboot.XP wshould load the drivers.

Also try SFC system file checker

Start/run and type sfc /scannow
