Windows 7: Have phantom hardware issue in "Devices" window ?

13 Sep 2011   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64bit SP1
Have phantom hardware issue in "Devices" window ?

My PC icon in Devices window has a warning icon attached to it....when I check properties I get the error in the attached jog.

Some time ago I had Seagate Disk Wizard...but removed it to run Akron's True Image Home (also listed)

I can not find "Disk Wizard" anywhere on the PC and/or in Registry ?

Can I correct this warning and how ?

Take a read on this thread here:
seagate disk wizard broke TI and i cant fix it - Wilders Security Forums

It looks like uninstalling Disk Wizard through Windows Uninstall is a common problem. And it sounds like Disk Wizard and TIH are the same program. It sounds like you need to completely remove both programs and then run the Acronis Cleanup Utility - with a twist.
