For the past week, when I boot up my computer,  I have been getting a new icon in the system tray and a box which comes up and contains the following:

 

One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned. Windows doesn't recognise it. If I try to close the notification it comes back immediately and stays there for some time and then disappear later as if the USB Device is now working.

 

When I click ed on the notification a new box "USB Device Not Recognised" box and I have attached a screenshot.

 

I'nm not sure what I can do with this as everything appears OK on my computer.

 

Any ideas please?

is this the same as uninstalling them in device manager? does this include the usb composite device, the usb mass storage device, the usb printing support, and the usb root hubs?
