    Every time Windows boots on my laptop, the Driver Sofware Installation icon appears in the system tray. On opening this, it is searching for drivers for an unknown device and bluetooth peripheral device. There are usually 4 bluetooth, and 2 unknowns involved. For each item the 'Found New Hardware' wizard pop-up appears with 3 options, none of which work at all. The only way I can carry on is by clicking the X on each. I have found the said devices in Device Manager in the 'Other Devices' sub folder with the error icon attached and have tried update driver, have even uninstall each of them, yet on reboot it all starts again. I've attached shots of the pop-ups. I'm at a loss as I've no idea what these devices could be, and it's starting to get rather annoying now.

    Check Windows Update for optional components that need to be updated.

    You may need to setup windows update to look for optional updates before they will appear. Hopefully there will be an update listed that will resolve this issue.
