That is probably why my log only goes from the time gateway had it to when BestBuy installed their bloatware on it. I've never had occasion to install any new hardware. just programs.

Would you like to see my setupapi.dev.log?

Not really . The CBS log is where Windows logs updates/component installation messages, although if you want messages from installing MSI-packaged software you have to enable MSI verbose logging if the app doesn't already do so in it's manifest. I usually keep a dev VM around for installing those sorts of apps (all debug settings enabled), and if a package is legit and doesn't cause issues I'll put it on my main machine.

Okay. Sound thinking for program installations.

What would you consider a red flag for running a dev VM to check for problematic software?

I've seen apps that try to do all sorts of things that they shouldn't - write live configuration to HKLM, but require users to need to update it. Try to replace system files - why does it want that specific version in \system32? Modification of Windows settings - there's no need for an app to modify the system configuration, in my opinion.

Things like that.

I have been wanting to find a way to reset windows 7 so when I plug in a device into a particular USB port it detects it as though for the very first time (installing device drivers message etc). Disabling or uninstalling drivers do not seem to instigate a 'new device routine'. Any ways of doing...
