Right-click a device or computer with the yellow warning icon , click Troubleshoot, wait while the troubleshooter tries to detect problems (this may take several minutes), and then follow the instructions.

Glad you got it sorted i did know it was a tablet that was causing the problem seems it can be fixed by using a 32 bit Driver
