Question Weird looking devices

I do have some weird looking non P&P devices in my Device Manager.

Anyone got a clue what the hell they are?

I also have there other suspicious drivers that does not support P&P, and their names are:

ATICDSDr
atidgllk
Beep - used, could this be removed for good somehow?
BOPOMAV
c34nb4c5
DirectX DLL register
e259q4c6
Fs_Rec
rvbedit (I killed this one already)
SSDefrag (I killed this one already)
NetGroup Packet Filter Driver
Parallel - used, could this be removed for good somehow?
YQZBNWOGRK (I killed this one already)

Can I remove/uninstall few of them?

Ditto. None of those are showing up for me either.

Those random letter/number combinations look mighty suspicious. Often, Googling them will bring up a surprising amount of information on them.

Well, fist at all, to see all these devices, you have to use the registry tweak:

Code:
REGEDIT4

;show all the devices in the hardware table
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]
"DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES"=dword:00000001
And then reboot + choose in the menu again show all devices. Then you can see these.

And true, I had a mallware infection when I was running IE. Not anymore, but some stuff can remain there.

ATICDSDr - removed, no ill effects
atidgllk - removed, no ill effects (I do overclock, but I have nVidia card (ATI mobo chipset tough) and mobo I overclock in bios)

Beep - used, could this be removed for good somehow? Is not that the "beep" speaker anyway? We see if it come back :D

BOPOMAV - removed, no ill effects
c34nb4c5 - removed, no ill effects (probably related to PunkBuster)
e259q4c6 - removed, no ill effects (probably related to PunkBuster)

Fs_Rec - removed, but it keep comming back (should be File System recognizer)

NetGroup Packet Filter Driver - part of WinPcap - installed for Etheral sniffer, removed

Parallel - removed, but it keep comming back (parallel port disabled in bios)

YQZBNWOGRK - removed, no ill effects
