My lil bro has one in his comp and its always there.
As a neat trick, to see everything thats in your device manager, even "ghost" hardware, try this:
Bring up your System Properties, goto Advanced -> Environment Variables
Under System Variables, click NEW
In name type: devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices
for value: 1
Click OK 3 times to get to your desktop.
Now, the thing is, it won't show the ghost devices if you go to the Device Manager the normal way, you actually have to go to START -> RUN and type in: devmgmt.msc
That'll open the Device Manager, now, click VIEW and SHOW HIDDEN DEVICES
You may be suprised by what you see. (Stuff that wasn't safely removed, and alot of stuff that doesn't have a USB Serial Number, so everytime you plug it in, it shows another instance of it.)
Just some useless / neat stuff we learned at work because the USB -> Serial cables would change to another COM port everytime you plugged it in again.
