Every time I boot up, I get hit with two "Found New Hardware" things, something about an ethernet controller and an SM bus controller. The computer works fine, but I'm getting sick of that stuff popping up. Is there any way to disable it, other than having to hunt down drivers which may or may not fix the problem?

The only way is to disable the items trying to be found...
Run, devmgmt.msc, enter find the yellow"?" and disable the devices there, apply and reboot.
