My computer crashed again. After restarting it, I used MiniToolBox. This is what was listed. They are both also listed in Device Manager as problem hardware. What are they and do I need them?

Thanks for assistance!

Uninstall the driver, and then click "Scan for hardware changes" to reinstall or upgrade the driver.

I was able to solve this myself. I researched it via Google.

Once upon a time, Alcohol 120 was installed on this computer. It was removed a few weeks ago. However, apparently, it is known to create its own storage devices. I was not aware of that. I uninstalled the devices. Uninstalling and deleting doesn't seem to have caused any problems.

More info can be found here: http://www.vistax64.com/vista-hardware-devices/167675-mystery-ide-storage-controller-driver.html. Scroll down to the last post.

You're welcome. Hopefully, it will help someone else. :)

However, the controllers returned using different names than before: AWAVSQMA IDE Controller, AHQU1V8L IDE Controller. I'm off to do more research. If anyone has any suggestions and such, that would be great. If I am able to be rid of them for good, I will post the solution.

More research lead to this. The drivers are hangovers from Alcohol 120. You have to go into Windows Drivers and delete sptd.sys. After that, use device manager to uninstall and delete the controllers.
