Driver incompatability prompt at startup

I have been getting this at startup for a long while now and i haven't noticed any problems with any app or hardware that i can think. But of i'd still like to know what this is about. Any ideas how i can find what this is because as you see it doesn't give me any details at all and there are no yellow exclamations in device manager.

You could try system restore. Go back to a time before the message appeared.

Installed 4.5, no joy. Can't system restore because the oldest restore point is recent. This issue has been happening for several months.

Please open Device Manager and post a screenshot. A disabled device will be automatically expanded from the devices tree and shown.

Just out of curiosity, what program, software, or app is generating this "warning" (can you right click on the tray icon to bring up a properties dialog box or a help dialog box?) Are you running any "optimizer" programs like Advanced System Care, Speed Up My PC, etc? Have you run a full system scan with your installed anti-virus program to check for malware? Have you tried any other on-demand scanners like Malwarebytes, ESET Online Scanner, Hitman Pro, SuperAntispyware, etc? (All of these are free.)

I'm running absolute minimal startup items, and the few that I do i've run long before this started. I have no virus scanners or anything like that. I run a very minimal clean system and nothing gets my ok to run but a few tiny things that i've always run. I'm quite sure whatever this is doesn't have to be running to notify me on startup, which makes me think a hardware driver. But i fear updating drivers to see if it will stop this because when i do more than 1/2 the time it screws something up. This doesn't seem to be causing any trouble so i would rather not do that because i'll be kicking myself if it causes problems.

Did you enable the 'Show hidden devices' option?

Ok, i tried that and found one entry with a yellow !. I googled it and it's supposedly something left over from an uninstalled app like AVG which i DID have at one time. So they said delete it which i did but i still get the prompt on startup.

EDIT: i just noticed my when i view hidden items theres one called "other devices" when when expanded shows logitech gaming HID device. So i updated my logitech driver/software and upon restart still get the prompt. I also noticed a correlation i think....there appear to be TWO of those driver incompatibility prompts. I thought it was just one but it appears to shift a bit to the left after a few seconds and i believe what that is is the first one disappearing and the second popping up. That would make sense since i found 2 hidden items with exclamations. Tho the logitech wasn't yellow and actually i think it was a ? not exclamation. And in any case both (assuming it IS 2 of them) prompts are still there ar startup.
