If you go to properties of that unknown device, any indication on what it is?

You can go here, search by product, make sure everything is up to date on firmware version. http://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers

As you can see on the added files (Snip1.jpg and Snip2.jpg, in French), it is a standard USB bus controller,
and it has an "error code 43". I have deleted it from the list of devices and trird another install.
Then, at first, there was no longer a yellow mark, but it soon came back.
The "detail" list is too long to send you as snippets, so I added the source file for this driver, as downloaded from "Elgato".
Hope this will help you reproducing the problem ?Alex

What all usb devices are plugged in?

See if you can unplug 1 at a time to see if this unknown device disappears in device manager to determine what it is.

I have a lot of USB devices and I know which one I am dealing with, since that's what causes the problem: I have bought a little gadget from a company called "Elgato", to connect to a TV tuner (using either SCART or HDMI cables) watch the TV program while it is converting it in real time into a mpeg 1 or 2 or an avi. So, all the difficulty rests with the computer side. What I need would be an error-free installation program but, if this is faulty or if it has errors, as it seems, an error-free set of all the actual driver files to install manually - but where can I get that from ?
