    I'll admit it's kind of cool to be able to say your computer has no devices, but it's also kind of nerve wracking. When I open device manager there's nothing in it. I had a recent bout against a few viruses, and after everything's clean, I get this weird thing. When I try to add devices or detect new devices, nothing happens either. Did I somehow delete an important file?
