    Recently downloaded a sound card driver. Download went fine. Minor problem! It also downloaded a joystick driver which I do not have. Since I do not have a joystick installed, I now have an entry in "Other Devices" with that famous big fat yellow ? next to it. I tried removing it and restarting - no good. I tried removing the entry in Safe Mode - still no good. It reappears every time I reboot my system. How can I permanently delete this entry? Thanks.

    :confused:

    Hi, jackpan,

    Just leave it alone. Won't cause any problem.

    Nothing listed in Add/Remove Programs for a joystick. There is a joystick icon in Control Panel but the file is empty with no device listed.
