    Unknown Device reports bad host controller

    After a clean installation of Windows 10, I get a series of Unknown Devices listed under "Other devices." When I run the update drivers option I get the message seen in the attached image.

    Try grabbing and using this driver instead. Your other source may have been corrupt to begin with, or corrupted during download or after-processing. HTH,

    Hi Ed,

    Thanks for the advice, but that didn't fix it. Here's a snip of my Device Manager.

    I've discovered these entries appeared when I attempted to install my Logitech Unifying Receiver. Running Driver Toolkit didn't find any missing drivers. I can delete these entries but they return if I try to install the Receiver again.

    Also happens when I try to install the drivers for my Line 6 UX1 (USB audio card for playing the guitar through). Bit mystified.
