I have a Sony VAIO with a Windows XP Professional operating system. Every time I reboot, a window comes up that says it wants to install a driver for the "Microsoft eHome MCIR 109 Keyboard." It says that I should put in the appropriate CD or find the file that contains that driver. Well, guess what? I don't know what the "Microsoft eHome MCIR 109 Keyboard" is, or why it should need to be installed on my PC. I read somewhere that it's probably a gaming application, but one that isn't actually a Microsoft product. It obviously isn't working and so seems unnecessary. The extent of gaming that is played on this PC is Runescape and a few simple kids games like Pajama Sam, all of which are played by my children. I'd like to remove it, if possible. Although it probably isn't be hurting anything, I'm always wary of viruses and don't want it to be the tip of the iceberg.
Could someone please explain its function? How necessary is it? If it is necessary, where do I find the pertinent driver? If it's unneeded, how do I go about deleting it? Thanks for the help!
