Lately I've been getting this notice on my Vista computer.   So I tell Vista go go ahead and search for the driver and I get this menu "WIndows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it.   "Microsoft ISATAP Adapter    The device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device (Code 31)

Do I need this "device"?  What does it do, and how can I fix the issue.

Thanks

Hi

I've heard of this before and found this:

One of those "ignore it" solutions.  I hate it when that happens.

Hope this helps.
