Hi Everyone! Merry Christmas, and Happy New Years!

:tazz: I don't know if I'm asking this in the right forum, or not, but here it is > Ive got some troubles here, and I'm not too sure what to do about em. Check out the attached picture, and notice all of those little yellow "?".

Can anyone tell me why they are listed like they are? Or what I need to do to get em to go away?
I'm running Windows XP Home, with SP 2 installed, along with all updates, I think.

That one picture didn't look too good to me so I edited it, and tried to get a clearer picture, I hope it's clear enough to read.

Thanks ♥ Wendy

I have never had those, but I think what they mean is that you have weird or unknown divices. Seeing that that is XP, you should search for drivers.

Come to think of it, I think those question marks mean that the computer doesn't know which category to put them in. (For example, they don't fit in audio, video, etc.) It made that category so it list them there. They put you at no harm.

Avast is an anti virus scanner
Have you try to uninstall this or as far as you know have you ever used or are you using avast anyi virus.
The IPOD service is for your Ipod and computer to talk to one another.
The yellow ? shows you do not have the correct drivers.
If you do not use avast or have an ipod you can remove them. If you do have them let us know and we will try and find the right drivers for you.

Hi STV0726, Thanks for the reply. That's kind of what I thought too.

Hi peterm, Thanks for the reply. Yes I do have Avast! I downloaded it from their site a good while back, and use it all the tine. As for the ipod thingy, shoot I've never even seen one of those things, and have no idea why that is listed, so what do I do with that one, just delete it?

Hope you guys had a Merry Christmas, and have a Happy New Year, Bye

Hi gerryf, Thanks for the reply. OK I did that and I'm working with Avast! on that also.

I have several yellow '?' left for Fax, Lavalys EVEREST Kernel Driver, and Windows User Mode Driver Framework.

What do I do about those?
Thanks Wendy
