conflict to other devices
danke für die info hat meinen rechner gerettet
Imaging Device / Webcam driver
it was compressed on my system, so that means it was old and unused idk why my AV decided to flag it. It was created years ago and I have run multiple AV engines over my drives since then. I doubt it's anything to worry about
Causes BSOD errors when connecting iPhone to USB (WinDMP analysis)
It conflicts with my Numark Mixtrack, and therefore, it prevents me from using it on Traktor and Virtual DJ. A word of advice, the link I send here will tell you how to remove this and other logitech drivers conflicting with audio and MIDI devices.

Best practices for resolving LVUSBSta issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with LVUSBSta. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
