What comes to my mind is you at one time had something else plugged into the computer at one time. Like a phone, card reader ect. and that is what Windows is seeing.
Reboot your computer and see if it goes away.
You don't need to bumb unless it's been a long time.

The utility that indianacarnie linked to will help you ID it and then you can search for a driver. If this is a new install it is likely a motherboard device of some kind.
