Mass storage device

by weatherman2 / September 2, 2012 7:54 AM PDT

Every time I boot my computer it tries to locate and install a driver for "Mass storage Device" . The install fails. I have one storage device connected to the computer at this time. The device manager indicates 2. I cant tell what the second one is. This all started after I updated at least 6 drivers using a program downloaded from the web. What can I do to eliminate this? It does not seem to be causing any problems, just like to get rid of it.

Hp computer
Windows 7 Home Premium (64 Bit)
8 GB Ram

Those driver update programs can cause more trouble.

Did you use System Restore to when it worked?

It didnt occur to me to try that. I'll try it if you think it will be the best course of action.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
