Computer: Hey Chanus! Found New Hardware, buddy! It's a mouse!

Chanus: Thanks, computer, but we already know this.

Computer: Oh, okay buddy. Just making sure, you know... oh, hey buddy! I Found New Hardware! It's a mouse!

Chanus: Yeah, yeah, I know. Thanks. Cool. You're the man. Great job! But we already have that mouse installed. Remember that one time... when we installed it already?

Computer: Oh yeah, that was good times buddy... Hey buddy! Found New Hardware! It's...

Chanus: IT'S A FUCKING MOUSE! I KNOW! WE DID THIS ALREADY!

Computer: Garsh, buddy... no need for all that... Hey buddy! Found New Hardware!

Anyone know how to get this computer to shut up about the damned mouse? I tried uninstall/reinstall and that didn't help. Erm... Went into device manager and uninstalled it from there. Reinstalled... same business.
