Default What "device" was installed

I accidentally stayed logged into my PC overnite. Transferring music onto a phone card. When I checked this morning I had a message that stated a device was installed in order to complete the installation successfully I have to restart. I didn't restart as I didn't think I installed a device. So, any idea how I can see what (if anything) was actually installed?

Thanks in advance for any and all help!

Hi,

Can you give us a little more information. We need to know what type of phone it was, and what program you were using to transfer the music.

Cheers!

Sure, sorry... Phone Sony Ericcson W350a (Walkman), Software was the PC Suite from Sony Ericcson. The thing I found interesting was that the message didn't appear last night when I installed and attached the device. The msg was there this morning. I'm a bit concerned that someone could have hacked in and installed something - but not sure how I would track that down?

Again, thanks! I'm sure you gurus get frustrated with the likes of me. Thanks for your patience though!
