Sometimes when I startup my computer it pops up saying "windows found new hardware:Mass storage controller" and "windows found new hardware: IEEE 1394 controller" shortly after. Of course, it wont let me install this stuff because I dont have enough access privileges. But what are these things and why are they trying to install on my computer?

Something new must have been added to your system.

IEEE controller is another name for fire wire.
Mass storage is something along the lines of additional storage. USB hard drive, mag tape, etc.

You may have set things us so that you have to log in as administrator to add any new hardware or software.

Yeah I know I cant install any software, because the computer isnt licensed to me. But my question is: Why is it doing this when I have nothing plugged into the USB ports or anything?
