Hello everyone. I'm new to this so please go easy on me. LOL
Here's my problems.
1.When I pull up my Device Manager
under the Infrared devices comes up
"Serial Cable using IrDA Protocol" and it has a caution sign on it.
When I click on it I get this
"Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"
I then go under the driver tab and click update driver and it searches and says everthing is up to date.
Should I Uninstall????? What should I do?????

2 & 3. When I pull up my Device Manager
under Network Adapters both
"Microsoft ISATSP Adapter #5" and
"Microsoft Tun Miniport Adapter #2"
Have Caution signs on them, and when I click "Microsoft ISATSP Adapter #5"it says
"This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)" And when I click "Microsoft Tun Miniport Adapter #2" it says
"This device cannot start. (Code 10)"
Again I tryed to update them and it says they are up to date.....
What do I do? Please Help Me

You did not indicate whether you actually had issues with the PC (not just the indications in Device Manager) and the circumstances leading up to them. What OS? What PC? What devices are affected?

1. Try uninstalling and reboot to allow Windows to reinstall the driver.

2. Doesn't seem to be an issue if the hardware is working. See this MS response.

3. Seems to be related to IP6 which is not extensively used at present so it may not affect Internet very much. See this long series of steps to take.
