Cannot Remove Unspecified Device


There is not windows 7 driver for my printer, as it's an older printer (about 5 years i think) so i had to use an alternate driver provided by hp so that i could properly print. Problem is the printer also appears under unspecified devices. I removed the device in device manager but it still appears under unspecified devices. When you right click you do not have the option to remove device or run as administrator. If anyone knows how to remove the device please let me know.

Unspecified Error Code 0

Script error. Line:2032, char:1, error:unspecified error, code:0, url:res://ieframe/preview.js. I can print nothing. I get this error always. My sys is xp home w/spak 3, internet explorer 7. I used "driver detective" to update my sys drivers. It seems this error developed after installing one or some of these updates.

Printer Appears In Unspecified Devices

I connected a zebra printer to my windows 7 machine using usb. The printer appeared in the unspecified devices. I went to there web site and obtained the latest drivers and installed them. The printer appeared in the printers section and works fine. However, the printer also still appears in the unspecified devices and there are no options to delete it. When the printer is switched off it disappears only to reappear when switched on again. I have seen another issue with several posts of the same type but no resolution was posted.

Error - Unknown Device - Usb Does Not Recognize Garmin Device

Just recently, windows 7 home premium addition has stopped detecting my garmin device. Other usb devices such as my ipod work fine. I was able to get it to detect the garmin only a few times, it would try to install the drivers but the drivers would fail to install. The garmin was working a few weeks ago. Below is a list of everything i have already tried:

Rebooting (after everything i try)
- Turning the computer off and leaving it unplugged overnight
- Completely uninstalling all drivers and software associated with the gamin.
- Manually installing drivers
- Uninstalling the unknown device and doing a search for new hardware
- Uninstalling the unknown device and doing a search for legacy hardware (this produces a device not functioning (code 10) error)
- Reverting back to a restore point before the last windows update

Please, any help would be very appreciated. I am decently computer savvy and have always been able to fix any problems that i have. This one has had me spinning my wheels for days.

Device Malfunctioned Error Code - 43 - Usb Device Not Recognized

I purchased a new computer with windows 7.initially my ipod worked fine with this computer. It still charges the ipod but nothing else. In addition it will not work on my old computer.

1. I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled itunes.

2. I reset the device losing all of my music.

3. I have gone to device manager and the ipod shows up as unkown device. I have stopped the device driver and rebooted.

4. I have tried to have attached to my old computer update and i receive the exact same error and usb not recognized message.

5. Other devices work fine on the usb hub, in addition i have tried the other usb hub.

All of the above measures have failed. This all started when i was having problems updating my music to the ipod, and i chose the restore function on the summary page of the itunes software, with the device attached, and recognized. Since then nothing? Initially when the device was attached after the restore option was chosen, i got need to attach to a 2. 0 usb  high speed hub, error message? It is a 2. 0 usb high speed device. I have reviewed other questions in this forum, on apples forums, all with the same results, nothing.

Dvd Device Driver Blocked - Unable To Use Device Code 48

I get a code 48 message. I have an intel d945psn board that has run w2000 on a eide hard drive. I upgraded to windows 7 with a new sata hard drive clean install, but transferred files with pc mover. Now my dvd burner(s) don't work citing the infamous code 48 and saying that the software for this device has been blocked from starting because it is known to have problems with windows.

Aren't cd/dvd device drivers pretty standard, and included with the bios?  How do i deal with that problem. I have tried to update drivers through "driver access", but the problem persists. The device doesn't even show up in windows explorer or my computer, but can be seen in device manager and on the cmos menu. The same is true of my second, identical sata hard drive. It appears that some of my important system drivers have been blocked.

Usb Hub Displaying As Device In Device Manager

Pretty much all my device connected to my usb hub used to show in device manager as separate devices. However, they now only show under the name "kevin o'connor" (the name of my zune). Open the device's properties and going to the hardware tab will show all the device connected via the usb hub.

Therefore, all the devices do in fact work, it's just a little bothersome to me, and the fact that i can't safely remove anything from the hub without having to eject the entire hub. Here's a screen shot that shows what the hub shows as: http://i34. Tinypic.com/34fxmp4.png

Apple Mobile Device Driver Issue With Mtp Device Driver

How do i get windows 7 to accept the 'apple mobile device driver' instead of the 'mtp device driver'? It is driving me nuts! Frequent itunes sync issues occurring. Suggestion is that windows is treating as a camera instead of ipod which makes sense given it asks me if i want to import pictures each time i connect the ipod. I need to get it to update driver from mtp to apple mobile but cannot get it to do it as it keeps saying no compatible driver in the file.

How To Remove Sky Player?

Simple question, how do i remove sky player. Whilst is a very well integrated ip tv service, i do not want it. I've gone in an deselected each of the sky player channels from my tv guide so that at least is clean. But he icons for it still appear on my 'tv' and 'movies' lines.

I would be happy to just hide it, but i fail to see how having my start menu listing things i don't want to use is helpful or of value to the end customer. I wouldn't mind if windows 7 was free, but i paid for this product i don't want advertisers getting their stuff on my screen.

In the beta you could just uninstall it from the programs and features item in control panel, but now it is live you can not remove it anymore.

There are a great many people in the uk who choose freeview simply because they don't like sky and how it operates, these folks are clearly upset if you look at the forums on the net. Personally i just like things to be well presented and having a sky product on my screen which i don't want in a product i paid for 'without any indication that it would be "sky'd" in the future is simply untidy and annoying.

Cannot Remove Sync Partnership

This is the second time this has happened after i re-installed windows 7 to fix it the first time. When i have copied an w7 standard folder like my pictures slide-shows or moved the location of user-name downloads to a network share it has created a sync partnership and i now have a sync icon in the system tray.

How do i remove the sync partnership and thus get rid of the icon? The previous post in "can't end sych partnership" does not work and as you can see in their someone has mentioned that it didn't work for them either.

I cannot delete the sync partnership and i have already unselected "make available offline" on the folder yet the link still remains in sync manager. I have searched the internet and tried all sorts of suggestions such as adding format database to a registry key and taking ownership of the csc folder and deleting the offline hidden folders. None of this has worked and it seems that many people have the same issue. How hard can it be to simply undo a sync partnership?

Slow To Remove Devices

I couldn't find a general windows 7 group, so i'm hoping someone here can help. I'm using windows 7 home premium on a laptop, and frequently use a usb memory stick. The issue i'm having is that the application to stop the memory stick so that i can remove it is very slow compared to previous
Versions of windows.

In the past, all i had to do was single click the "remove hardware" app, and within a few seconds, the list of devices would popup. Now when i click the app, it takes easily 15-20 seconds before the list pops up.

If i go to my computer, i can right-click the device and click eject, and the process is much faster, but it's extra mouse-clicks i'd like to avoid. Am i doing something wrong here? Why isn't the remove hardware app faster?

Unable To Remove Account

I recently had my computer repaired at best buy and it returned working well but a new "administrator" account was added even though i already gave them the password and such for my own administrator account. This account is seriously bothering me. I cannot get rid of it for the life of me. I repeatedly attempt to remove the account but when i go into add/remove account and manage the account, the only option missing is "delete the account". Why is this and how can i make it an option?

Remove Ie8 64-bit

After a few hours with my 3rd party antivirus software help folks, they finally told me that their software works with win 7 - 64-bit but doesn't work with ie8 - 64-bit. I have ie8 - 64-bit loaded on my pc, along with the 32-bit version. I need to remove (uninstall) the 64-bit version.

If i remove ie8 via control panel | programs & features | turn windows feature on or off, by not selecting it, it's gone after a re-boot. However, when i then turn it back on, both the 32 & 64 bit ie8 appear. I need the ie8 64-bit to not be reinstalled (or uninstall ie8 64 bit ;^)

Anybody have any ideas?

How Can I Disable / Remove Photoviewer?

I have a canon powershot. It has a 16gb sdhc card - which the reader on my dell 2407fp does not recognize. No driver updates available either. Therefore, i plug the camera directly into a desktop usb port to view photos. Irfanview is my default image editor but when i click a pic in explorer the default is to preview (not open) and this function is automatically performed by (ugh) photoviewer - which is possibly the worst slowest most cumbersome image prog ever foisted upon the public at large. This driving me over the edge! How can i disable /remove photoviewer from my life?

Add And Remove Programs Is Not Working

Suddenly, my 500 gb computer hard drive that had few used space is showing that i have 22 mb left. I can't figure out why. I have noticed that the programs that i have uninstalled in add or remove are still on my hard drive-folders as well as the megabytes they use. I am baffled! Can anyone make a suggestion. I think something is wrong with the windows.

My starry night enthusiast program is taking up 768 mb and windows did not install any of it. The fold er is still there. I had tried ibm lotus, and uninstalled it. It is still there. When i tried to contact microsoft for support, it has expired. That was a shock! It hasn't been out that long! Has anyone else had this problem? Can i just delete the folders since i did the uninstalls?

Win 7 Remove Trackpad Driver

I recently upgraded my sony vaio vgn-n365e laptop to windows 7. The trackpad initially worked fine without any driver download, except for the scrolling functionality. Then i downloaded an hp alps pointing device driver that was compatible with windows 7, and it worked great to enable scrolling.
However, after a few days and a few restarts, windows 7 won't recognize the trackpad anymore. I tried downloading both hp and sony alps drivers for win 7 32 bit, but nothing changes each time.
Sony says they won't update the alps pointing device driver published for my laptop model to work with windows 7.

Cannot Remove Google Redirect Virus

There is apparently some kind of virus that is causing google and yahoo (also bing) search result links to be redirected to unrelated sites or spam sites. I did a full scan with kaspersky internet security and also with windows defender - both had updated databases but neither detected the problem. I have the same issue with both internet explorer 7 (xp with all security updates) and firefox.

The symptom is when you do a search on google or yahoo, then click on one of the results, you are taken to a page other than the one specified in the link, usually a page about a completely different topic or a spam site. Other people have reported the same issues on various blogs but not clear solution. How can i find and remove this virus?

Remove Vista Boot Option

Since installing windows 7 over my vista os i get a boot manager screen asking me which os i want to load, windows 7 or vista. I thought the upgrade would eliminate vista as an option. I didn't partition and install. I was doing a straight upgrade. How can i remove vista as a boot option? Is there anything else i need to be aware of that can cause a problem? I don't want to leave any items that will cause a conflict. I am a little but not hugely computer saavy.

Disable Or Remove Raid 1 Mirror

How can i disable or remove raid 1 mirror in windows 7? I have just bought a new desktop with windows 7. I bought it on-line, and ticked the box marked "raid 1 mirror" without understanding properly what it meant. My machine is now here, and of course one hard disk is partitioned into two, whilst the other is invisible on my sytem and, i assume, just a copy of the data on disk one.

Now that i know what raid is, i realize i don't need it, and would like to have regular use of my two hard discs. I have the 64-bit windows 7 disc so can simply re-install windows 7 if need be, if that is the answer, but would welcome nice clear advice, please.
