I have recently re-built an Advent PC (bought from PC World) and when I formatted the HDD I also got rid of the drivers for all the Hardware (stupid I know!).  I have re-installed the drivers but I am experiencing problems with the USB ports whenever I logon to windows its shows 4 drives relating to the USB ports when there is no device plugged in.  I have looked in device manager and there are 2 devices not working properly, 1 under Multilmedia and 1 under USB controllers.

I was only concerned about this after plugging in a USB dongle for a wireless internet connection and noticed that the system process under task manager maxed out using 100% CPU usage!  When I unplugged the dongle it went back to normal so I'm guessing its related to the drivers for the USB ports.  Tried updating them but it says they are up-to-date.  I am in the process of checking the event viewer and use proc mon to see exactly whats happening.

I used everest to get the driver info after re-building the machine, problem is its not my PC (as obviusly I would not of bought it from PC World!).

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
