Can I disable windows from detecting new hardware
when it starts up.  Every time I remove an item, windows
wants to re-install it.  I would like to stop this.

Thanks in advance

No, you can not disable this feature. (Microsoft apparently thought your computer knows what you want better than you do.)

If you want to remove a driver for good, the simplest method is to let Windows install it, and then choose Start, Settings, Control Panel, System, Device List, click on the device you want to remove, click Properties, and then remove the check box in "Original Configuration". This will tell Windows that the device still exists, but that its drivers shouldn't be loaded, which is what you want.
