Ausbctrl.exe Problem

About a month ago, when I connected a new USB device, Windows XP would tell me that it did not recognize it and offered to search for a driver, but it never found one. USB devices I had used before continued to connect and work fine. I just realized that whenever I restarted my computer, I would get a message that Windows had a problem with Ausbctrl, and could not run it. I finally realized that A-USB-CTRL caused my device recognition problem.

In using Google search this morning, I found Ausbctrl is a product of Adaptec, but I have been unable to learn anything about this at their website. Can anyone tell me what this program does and what would happen if I remove it?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Keith,

I did find I had Abusctrl on my system and I removed it from the control panel.

Thanks for your help.
