I tried that, but windows reinstalls the same usb headset driver
automatically and I end up in the same situation. Rebooting doesn't
help either. I also have another logitech headset that works ok and
when I plug it in, it also lists an additional composite usb device
(without the yellow checkmark) and it also lists an additional
audiodevice. So it's as if two new devices appear as soon as I connect
the logitech headset (and they disappear when I disconnect the
headset). When I plug in the sennheiser headset however, I only see
one new device appearing (as a composite usb device) with a yellow
mark to indicate something is wrong.
