I have come accross a computer that all of a sudden the driver profiles are gone... have you guys heard of viruses that can do that?

I right clicked on "My Computer" and then on "Hardware" and then "device manager" and the page was blank! I tried clicking on the blank page and right clicking on it, but nothing is there, its not detecting anything at all!

please get back to me, to let me know if this can be fixed


thanks a lot

This method seems to have worked for many with the same problem:

You must be logged on as a local administrator to perform this task:

1. Go to "Start", "Run", and enter "regedt32"
2. Maximize the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" window.
3. Scroll down to "SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum"
4. With "Enum" selected click the "Security", "Permissions" menu.

Note: At this point you will probably notice there are no permissions on this key.

5. Click "Add".
6. Add the group "Everyone" and the user "SYSTEM".
7. Select "Everyone" and check "Read" ONLY!
8. Select "SYSTEM" and check "Full Control".
9. Click the "Advanced" button at the bottom of the window.
10. On the Advanced window check "Reset permissions on all child objects..."
11. Click "OK"
12. On the warning window click "Yes"
13. Close REGEDT32

You should now be able to see everything in Device Manager
