    Device manager keeps refreshing! (I found the cause)


    My device manager refreshes every 1-2 seconds and I've been able to track down the cause. An "Unknown USB Device" pops up under USB Controllers in the device manager. I've tried to disable it and uninstall it, and it just reinstall itself when the Device Manager refreshes. But, I've also tried to uninstall my USB Root Hub (USB 3.0) a few times and whenever it's uninstalled, the refreshing stops, but of course, i can't use my mouse or keyboard then because all USB's are disabled. I've been trying to fix this issue for over 6 months now and I'm starting to loose my mind. Any help would be so appreciated.

    :)

  2. Device manager refresh causing mouse lag


    I am all of the sudden getting mouse lag (mouse freezes up for 5-10 seconds every 30-60 second) due to my device manager constantly refreshing, or at least that's what I think it's from. I pulled up the device manager and the task manger to find what is happening. The sequence is: mouse freezes and device manager refreshes, then I notice Microsoft Management Console appears at the top of my Task Manager. So it seems the Microsoft Management Console is doing something to cause the Device Manager to refresh and then cause the Bluetooth mouse to freeze up. I'm not tech savvy, so I know I don't understand how all this works. I just need some help fixing it. Thanks ahead of time!

    Thanks. I uninstalled the driver then installed the top driver on this list. Assumed it was the latest.

    Now the device manager refreshes again with the yellow exclamation mark appearing and disappearing in between refreshes.

    Device Manager keeps refreshing - due to network adapters

    Hi Timm,

    Device Manager refresh tends to happen when a new hardware is plugged in or removed, whether its a flash drive, and/or etc. This also happens when a driver is not working properly in which the Device Manager attempts to refresh to restart the said driver.
    Plausible reason is that your Network adapter requires update since all this started right after upgrading to Windows 10. If you haven't done so, you can update it by following the steps below:

    • Go to Device Manager and right click on Network Adapters.
    • On the drop down, click on "Update Driver".
    • Follow the instruction in the Update Driver Software wizard.

    Also as an alternative check if this issue persist on Safe Mode. You can go to this link for the steps on how to boot to safe
    mode. You can also go to your PC manufacturer website for the latest driver update.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
