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!

Hello and welcome to the forum!

What type of keyboard do you currently have on the system and is it wireless?
I assume that it works correctly.

The next time this pops up see if there is a checkbox that says something to the extent of "dont prompt me to install this again" and check it.
That should make it go away.
In the beginning there was the command line.

I use the Sony VAIO keyboard that came with the system; it is Model PCVA-KB4P/U. It works fine.

I don't remember ever seeing a "don't prompt me to install this again" type checkbox. If there is one, I expect that I would have checked it long ago. I'm human, however, and prone to occasional mistakes, so I'll be sure to look for it next time that I reboot. Thanks!

No, there isn't a "don't prompt me to install this again" option. Instead, if you press the option to install, it says that it needs the kdb106.dll file, which it says is found on the Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 CD. I have that service pack loaded on my PC, but it was done by a technician last fall after my computer crashed and was rebuilt. I don't have that CD and I can't find that file online for downloading.

What do I try next?

Thanks!
