Split from http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/506429/how-to-tame-device-manager-and-usb-driver-problem/ , moved to Win 8 - Hamluis.


In Device Manager the Intel® ICH family USB Enhanced Host Controllers show errors:


"The driver installation file for this device is missing a necessary entry.  This may be because the INF was written for Windows 95 or later."


My Speccy file information is located below.  Can anyone help?

A simple thing to do is to go into control panel, device manager then hardware.  Delete all the USB stuff then reboot, windows does a very good job of installing the new needed ones.  Over time from plugging in various USB devices many extra unneeded devices get added to the manager.

Honesty & Integrity Above All!
