I just ran the 'Resource and Performance Monitor' on Windows 7


Likes # 0

Hi I just ran the 'Resource and Performance Monitor' in Windows 7 and it came up with the following information...

"The device, SBRE, is reporting "tvConfigMgrErr24". This device will not be available until the issue is resolved. The Plug and Play ID for this device is ROOT\LEGACYSBRE\0000"

I looked in 'Device Manager' to see if I could track down this device. Initially I couldn't find anything. So I clicked on 'View' and 'Show Hidden Devices' and among the hidden devices one was flagged with an exclamation mark 'SABRE'.

Device Type: Non-Plug and Play Drivers

Manufacturer: Unknown

Location: Unknown

Device Status: This device is not present,is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed.(Code 24)

Service Name: SBRE

Display Name: SBRE

Current Status: Stopped

(There are two buttons, one says 'Start' the other is greyed out and says 'Stop'.)

Startup Type: System

(At the bottom of this panel there is another greyed out button, which says 'Driver Details')

Question: Can anyone throw any light on this. Should I be concerned or just ingnore it?

Thanks for that, it has now gone. However, it doesn't explain how it got there in the first place? As I haven't used AdAware!
