Hello- 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.
