Firstly, it looks like you may have some bugs. Viewpoint Manager Service is Spyware and should be removed. You can usually do that through Add or Remove Programs as ViewPoint Media Manager.

You might want to download HijackThis or Deckards System Scanner and post your logs in the Malware forum. It is very likely that some bug has done that to your Device Manager. You need to eliminate that much at the very least. If all looks good with Viruses or Spyware, then you might have a Registry Entry that is doing that. BE CAREFUL editing the registry. You can do irreparable harm to your computer if you make registry changes improperly.

Good luck.
