Default Windows experts: Is this correct?

Maybe some of you read about my issues with my Midi hardware - today I stumbled upon something curious, but maybe it is totally normal and correct, I don't know. When I looked at the connected devices via DevManView, I spotted two (2) active drivers and firmware loaders for my interface.



Do you think this might be the culprit? Could I just delete one of them without risking to brick the hardware? And how to determine which to delete?

Thanks so much!

EDIT: At one point I indeed did have two Midex 8 connected, but I'm sure I had deleted all the drivers and temp files before I re-installed the single one.

Ghostbuster is nice for removing extra instances or disconnected devices.

Any device you ever connect to any port will leave it's "ghostly traces" behind and sometimes they cause issues...run in admin mode and create a restore point.
