    Hi Ian

    Sometimes MS Security updates can allow new hardware to be found (especially in Service Pack updates)
    So it may in fact be trully new hardware found.

    Normally your best option is to go to your manufactures support web site and download all the updated drivers.

    You should also check that you haven't mistakingly plugged something in (Camera?)

    One last idea, is to run Startup Control Panel and turn off any not required Startups
