In order to install a generic driver version offered by this site, I MUST

# Remove ALL drivers for USB flash drives in Device Manager
# Remove ALL drivers for any USB 2.0 controllers (many have an uninstall option)
# Remove ALL unknown devices from Device Manager

the enigma, because I have limited knowledge about computers, is that under Dev Man and Under Univ Serial Bus controllers
I have 2 entries ad USB Root Hub and 2 more below VIA Tech 3038 PCI to USB Univer Host Controller

Should I delete any one of then in order to install the driver? I'm afraid I may mess up thinks behind repair!

I sincerely appreciate your help, possibly in an elementary format.
Thanks samanta Embarassed

Just leave them. If you remove them it will only detect them the next time you restart I think.

You should be ok to leave them.
