That's perfect, I'll take closer look at some of the settings and see if we can't sherlock a little more information together. I'll get back to you shortly. Meanwhile have a think about just removing it RE: my discussion with WindowsStar earlier.

Back to our device manager detective hunt. Please let me know what the following entries on the details tab contain.
DevNode status - This will tell us the current status of the device and differentiate between a driver existing and a driver loading
Device Instance path - Often contains Vendor and hardware information, if not than it may contain an ACPI linking it to a processor group.
Physical device object name - unique naming reference
Class Long Name - It's group name
Class Short Name - It's short (actual) name
Class icon path - The path to the dll that houses it's icons
siblings - Any related siblings
parent - any related parents

Hi Simon,

Could you please tell me if this key exists in your registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\Root\LEGACY_CPUZ132
Open REGEDIT from SEARCH or RUN and navigate to it. If it exists, please right click on it and export it. Then attached the export to your next post.

Also would you mind filling in your system specs page so I can see what CPU and other hardware you already have.

Thanks

Hi Sikm,

I've been out all day and just got back to look at your issue and one for another poster.

As a matter of urgency, can you please review this post and see if the other registry entries, *.dll's and files also match your scenario. I mentioned earlier that your issue may be a virus and although I am less than a quarter of the way through the new data that you sent me. I feel that this is important enough to let you know asap. I may yet prove this not to be so, but until I have please take a look as well.

Timo

EDIT
After reviewing the data, unfortunatley there is nothing substantial to find this device. However it's most likely to be one of three things.

1. A Virus
Many Virus' hide by faking themselves as real devices, so I take Virus warnings in device manager cautiously; but with an open mind. I want to rule out a real device first.
Comodo Report.
WinBlueSoft
This Blog where it is shown starting from inside a temp folder.
Also check this generic search.

You can ascertain if it is a virus by looking for the other tell tale signs as shown in the other blogs.

2. Windows Vista Installation or CPU ID
It's referenced a couple of times as a Windows Longhorn (the pre-release name for Vista) CPUID device. I first noticed this on a Chinese Alienware site; however I lost the link (and it's in Chinese anyway). But also here at GeekPolice it's on the driver safelist and here as well as system lookup. This does not mean that this is correct, I'm just mounting evidence. Did you upgrade from Vista?

Windows 7 may detect an unknown yet supported CPU as a Longhorn device. Please Post what CPU you have and I will find the correct driver link for it, to ensure that you have the correct drivers.
Therefore we'll rule this out. However a Vista, or Win7 device should have a Hardware ID.

[B]3. A 3rd party program, although less likely there are a number of links to third party programs that share the same drivers and may also post that registry entry as a dummy device. The 3rd party programs are all Hardware monitoring tools? have you installed or removed any of these since you last installed windows?
Some examples of the 3rd party programs are below, there may be others:
PC Wizard 2009
SPECCY
CPUZ

A synopsis:
- We need you to rule out a virus by checking for the other things mentioned in the first link I posted (copied here)
- Please post your CPU make and model and we'll find the link to the drivers, for you to verify that you have the correct ones installed for all supported CPU functions (remember that some CPU's handle graphics functions and many other things)

This whole exercise...

...is becoming a little tedious. So:

I disabled the device in Device Manager and, after re-booting my Win7 system (a clean installed, not an upgrade) there were no adverse effects.

So I then uninstalled the device and re -booted. Again, no adverse effects.

Then, mindful of the virus concerns, I ran MalwareByt'es anti Malware which found 4
infections: Spyware.onlinegames: Malware.Packer.Krunchy(2): and a Ubisoft game launcher ubiorbitapi_r2.dll. These were all quarantined and deleted successfully.

The final step I took was to 'Add A Device' but Windows didn't/couldn't find anything.

I know that this might not have solved the problem - it certainly hasn't explained the cause - and others might not be satisfied with my 'solution'. However I'm happy with the result and will check device manager on a regular basis to see if anything untoward re-appears.

Thank you all for your help, my first visit to this forum and I'm very impressed with the level of expertise/support.

Simon

P.S. I will get round to completing my system details!

It's good to hear mate... it was getting a little tedious for me too.

I can clarify relationships between ControlSet00X and CurrentControlSet

System read & use informations from only HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet as name of key suggest,so if you want anything change in
system it's enough modify only this key.


In system there are usually 2-3 ControlSet00X (ControlSet001,ControlSet002,ControlSet003..) but somebody may have more of them. I know one guy which have almost 100 such kind of keys
These keys are created i.e when you use "Last Good Configuration" option

Only one of ControlSet00X is loaded under CurrentControlSet hive

To identify which one is loaded as CurrentControlSet you have to navigate to key

HKLM\System\Select and find Current string

if Current is equal 1

that means under CurrentControlSet is loaded key ControlSet001

if Current is equal 2

that means under CurrentControlSet is loaded key ControlSet002

and so on

of course when you edit anything in CurrentControlSet you edit his clone as well.Remains ControlSet00X keys are only kind of registry backups

BTW
There is a good tool which can identify registry keys,files for drivers
