problems with add new hardware wizard
 
i'm looking at a friends pc and they are having a really strange problem when plugging in any new hardware.
add remove hardware wizard detects the new hardware and pops up
but then it continually keeps closing and popping up so have to end up trying to click cancel until eventually manage to get the cancel button the moment it pops up
and then installing the drivers manually
or opening add remove hardware wizard manually and then it doesnt continually pop up.

this is happening every time my friend turns up his printer which can be a pain :u02

any ideas welcome :/

its happening on both his pc and his laptop

think it may be related to Mcafee :u20 system protect (now disabled on both but problem is still happening)

what OS is he using on both system?

i couldn't confirm anything with Mcafee as i haven't used it in years
but if its happening on both PCs now, looks like you got a good place to start

USB hardware?
Check the power saving mode of the controller...had a similar issue with some of our fingerprint readers at work
