Windows 7: Multiple Mouse & Keyboard Drivers

Multiple Mouse & Keyboard Drivers

I installed a new wireless desktop, Microsoft Wireless 3050 Desktop, and noticed that I've got multiple drivers installed in device manager. I uninstalled the duplicate drivers and rebooted and they all appear to have reinstalled. The screen shot posted below shows the drivers. Is this normal? If not, what is the fix so the system doesn't install duplicate drivers?

Regards

They may have same name but different purposes.
Right click on a driver - properties - Details
Then Right click on a driver that has the same name - properties - Details

Compare both.

Hi, thanks for the reply.

They all appear to be identical in the property details.

The attached screen shots are for the first duplicate driver listed. They appear to be identical.

I tried it both ways and I don't see any differences.
