:tazz: Attack of the ninja hardware. Everytime I boot up, my computer says it recognises new hardware. I get the hardware wizard telling me it has "found new hardware". There are three of them, called 88d5b2q0, a7e5b28t and eh06b282. What on earth can these be?? I refuse to allow hardware wizard to install them, as I don't know what they are. I can't find anything about them on google either.

Could these be affecting computer performance? If so, how do I get rid of them? If not, how do I find out what they are and what they do? ;)

Well, if you didn't install new hardware and all of a sudden these pop up, I would suspect some kind of malware. Work through the malware guide at the top of this forum where it says "Do you suspect a malware (Spyware, Virus, Trojan) infection? Please start here. " See what you find. If you still have trouble after that, post a hijack this log in the malware forum.
