Windows 7: Repetitive Authorization Prompts

Repetitive Authorization Prompts

It seems that most, if not all, the times that I remove a USB device (e.g. my iPod), I get a firewall authorization request, seemingly from Microsoft: "Device Display Object Function Discovery Provider".
Is this familiar to anyone?

All I can tell you is that it is legitimate.

In Windows 7, there are two Function Discovery related services. These are concerned with broadcasting of your computer and attached devices/resources, so if these are disabled other computers on the network will not be able to see your computer. Unless you are on a network, try tweaking the startup type of these services. This is a good guide on the subject.

Are you stopping the usb device before removing it?

Yes, I am stopping the device - that's when the message appears. The odd thing is that it is listed in the firewall list of autorized programs.
