    What brings about the found new hardware wizard even when there is no new hardware that has been added recently?

      Not too sure if you have solved the problem but from my own personal experience, if software for a particular piece of hardware was accidentally removed then this could cause the issue that you were referring to, additionally one of your computer peripherals maybe lose please check and verify.

        Hi thanks Soldadodedios. I have not removed any software but i have checked the loose connection. I am waiting to see how it will behave, If it doesnt improve then am afraid it could be a virus. Am not sure...

    There are a lot of things that can cause that actually, and it can be really annoying. My phone had the solder bead that holds the charging port to the board, and until I resoldered it, I couldn't plug it into my computer without getting a popup every 2 seconds.

    Also a loose connection with the board on a USB device, or the device itself can cause it...

    Do you use daemon tools or any kind of "virtual drive" software? They are pretty notorious for that.

    Normally it's just a flash drive wiggling or getting popped out, but it won't hurt anything. Also, you can disable those popups under the system category in the CP

    Perhaps your operating system has a problem or the drivers of your computer is not completely installed.
