    hi guys..
    i have a problem with this found new hardware wizard on windows xp. recently i tried to install windows sp2 but after installing, my computer could not start successfully, & can only be started in safe mode. so i unintalled sp2 & roll back to sp1. but after the uninstallation, this 'found new hardware' wizard keeps coming out everytime i start my computer. everytime it finds 'video controller (VGA compatible)' & 'S3 graphic card' (or something like that). no matter how many times i install, everytime i start my computer it still find the same hardware.
    anyone know what is going on?
    also, it seems that it is always running a file system check before i can start my computer...
    thanx in advance!

    Is there a system restore point you can rollback to as well?

    im afraid no...when i wanted to uninstall sp2 by using system restore, it can't, & i can only uninstall it via add/remove program. & bcoz i was 'attacked' by this trojan horse dialer 7.B, i was suggested to turn off my system restore & scan my computer & then turn it on again. now i have only a system check point, nothing else...
