Question:Q:Installing device driver every time I turn on the computer
Every time I turn on my computer or plug in my iPhone 3G, I get the little icon and popup for "Installing Device Driver" and after a couple of minutes it says it installed successfully and then starts installing itself all over again. It's irritating as heck. I'm on Windows Vista and iTunes version 188.8.131.52. I updated Windows and updated iTunes and neither helped. This just started happening within the last week. My computer only has one USB drive and it's the one I've always used. Please help!
It sounds as if you have more than one thing going on here. You say that when you turn on your computer you are getting an icon about installing device driver. Then you say it happens "or plug in my iPhone 3G". These should be two different issues.
Let's isolate the first one. When you turn the computer on, you are getting a device driver popup. This occurs every time you turn on the computer? Are you running it in an administrator mode? What kind of external devices do you have connected to the computer? What USB devices do you have connected, i.e. printer, external drives (not flash drives)?
every time I plug any Iphone or Itouch into my computer, it tries loading a driver and says it does correctly but it says the iphone doesnt ave required software and i need to delete itunes and update it, Ive done that and no help. I have noticed that when Itunes updates it seems to Roll back action of installing Apple Mobile device Manager. It doesnt show up in programs like all other apple progams that i DELETED PER APPLES INSTRUCTIONS.
