I`m going to guess you are looking at Hidden devices using the Environment Variables tweak I posted in another thread.
Be very careful when removing drivers under Network adapters
and Sound, video and game controllers
. Sometimes it is not as easy as just reinstalling them
. Do`t ask me how I know.
Although they are shown as not being used they may still be need`d by a program that is not currently running. But once you attempt to use the program you`ll know it was need`d.
If you use Flash drives be aware that there are usually 3 drivers installed each time one is plugged into a different
port. One under Disk drives
, one in Storage volumes
and one, sometimes 2 in Universal Serial Bus controllers
USB mice and keyboards may also install several. Not just under Keyboards
and Mice and other pointing devices
but also under Human Interface Devices
and Universal Serial Bus controllers
.Non-Plug and Play Drivers
can become really overloaded with drivers left behind from uninstalled software. Many security programs install drivers that are left behind after the program has been uninstalled.
Tread carefully and do your research.
