Welcome to the forum erikb.

It appears you have installed a driver detection program.
Keep in mind it might of slipped in your system while you were downloading something else you wanted.

Here is what I found.

Official Home of Driver Detective - Your Most Trusted Driver Update and Driver Download Software

From your posted log.

<stackTrace> at DriversHQ.DriverDetective.Client.UXState.a(DeviceStates A_0)

I don't recommend any such program.

1. Do you want to keep this program?

2. What have you download lately that this program might of piggy backed?

3. If so where did you get the downloads from?
