New hardware found wizard issue
I've been having a problem for a few days now that everytime I boot the new hardware found wizard comes up for all of my USB devices. They've been working for the past few weeks with no problems but for some reason it's screwed up now.
The worst part is that the wizard pops up multiple times for each device (roughly 5). Right now I've just got my Mouse and Keyboard (both MS brand) connected so I get this wizard about 10 times.
If I go through the steps to install the hardware it fails, but the devices still work. If I choose to never get the message again the devices stops working until I reboot and get the messages again.
Not sure if it's just a general USB issue or what. I also cannot install my IPod nano either.
Vista Enterprise x64
Intel Quadcore 2.4ghz
Mouse: MS Comfort Optical 3000
Keyboard: MS Natural Ergonomic 4000
I've seen the hotfix available for the "failed to install" issue with the hardware wizard but when tryng to install that hotfix i get the message that the update does not apply to my system. I did quadruple check to make sure I ran the one for x64 and on that not with the ipod i did make sure I ran "itunes64setup" for itunes 7.6 (the latest version), and i did install the latest versions of IntelliPoint and IntelliType for vista 64 (actually uninstalled and reinstalled these 5 times).
