Hi betacode. What do you mean by "Reset device manager to default"? What's there to reset? Do you know how it is done? Registry? A command, maybe? Thanks.

What does that even mean? Unless all computers are the same, what is a 'default' on one computer will not be the default on any other. Unless it means re-enable all disabled devices and who has that many disabled devices that UVK needs a tool to regularly undo that?

Reset to default as in clean install of os before any app installed.

So....uninstall ALL devices and force a fresh scan? What purpose would that serve?

"...before any app installed" -- but very very few apps install devices. It's not like Adobe Reader cares if you have on ACPI driver installed over another.

As part of my fix, I use a program called DeviceCleanup from www.uwe-sieber.de and use the command line option to auto-run it and remove any devices the PC hasn't seen for over 60 days. Gets rid of old flash drives and such, a tiny repair but why not?
