Hello. In my Device Manager, I have a yellow question mark next to "Other Devices" and under that, another yellow question mark next to "Unknown Device". When I click on Properties (Details tab) it says "ROOT\LEGACY_NPF\0000". How do I resolve? A few weeks ago my AVG Virus Vault quarantined "TrojanHorse Pakes.CBT". All clear and no problems for weeks.. but just noticed this Unknown Device in Device Mgr. Thx.

Thanks for the replies. Turns out I had an embedded Trojan via a rootkit. I received assistance and used Malwarebytes and ComboFix to repair. Device Manager no longer shows the Unknown Device.
