NetTrans Device Tries to Install

Posts: n/a
      29th Nov 2008
I posted this problem on the Win XP General newsgroup on 11/24/08, but
haven't recived an answer as of today, so I will repeat my question here.
Every since I upgraded my laptop OS to Win XP Pro last weekend (I deleted the
previous W2K files after installation), I keep getting the hardware popup
wizard to install a device called NetTrans at every boot. I didn't know what
this device was, so after searching on the web I found one reference by MSDN
that NetTrans has something to do with network protocol and is used in the
Windows XP Embedded software...but this device has no dependencies and isn't
configurable, so I don't know how to find this driver. I tried letting
Windows Update find the driver and searched through the files present on my
laptop, but didn't find it. I also searched my Win XP Pro sp3 and W2K sp4
CDs-still no joy. The best guess I can come up with is that the hardware is
probably related to my infared software, which I upgraded the driver to
yesterday (and also updated the PCMCIA drivers), but the hardware wizard
still pops up at every boot. Can someone please point me to a resolution to
finding this driver or at least a way to stop the annoying hardware wizard
popup. BTW-my laptop is networked to my desktop via wireless, and both have
the same OS-Win XP Pro sp3. Thanks any response.

I resolved this issue by installing a device related to a hotkey utility that
was only available from my laptop's manufacturer support site (Fujitsu).
When I rebooted, the hardware wizard no longer pops up. Apparently the
hotkey also includes devices to help with network protocol.
