Your post makes absolutely no sense. Please take your time and explain EXACTLY what is happening.

1: Connect the device to your computer.
2: Let the computer detect the device.
3: Go to My Computer > and look under the drives, there should already be a few, like "A, C,D" and the one you're looking for would probably be named E.
4: After locating the correct drive letter, double click.
5: Locate the file(s) you would like to remove.
6: Right click, and click delete

I'm not sure how you can offer advice before we know what the specifics of the problem are. I suggest we wait to hear exactly what is wrong before we start offering advice.

Hi

Based on this "first sound, now key board and also Adobe flash"

It seems to me reading between the lines that the Windows install is losing drivers for the hardware and programs.

Well...the initial/sole post was 7 Dec...I'd say that whatever it was has not been a major concern of OP.

 

If we had a "dead letter" file, I think this would be a candidate.
