SUMo - unknowdevices -SysInfoViewer -SIV
SUMo stands for Software Update Monitor. Thanks to SUMo you'll be able to keep your PC up-to-date by using the most recent version of your favorite software ! Unlike build-in auto update features, SUMo tells you if updates are available before you need to use your software.

  • Automatic detection of installed software
  • Detects required updates / patches for your software
  • Filter / authorize Beta versions (user setting)
  • Ignore list : only tracks software YOU want to track
  • More compatibility and less false positive than others Update Monitors (according to users feedback ;-)
  • Internationalization support.
New! You can get a beta version of the next Unknown Devices with Windows Vista support. I will be posting new beta versions as features are added but please give it a shot and let me know if you have any issues at The beta version works with Win95, 98, 98se, 2000, XP, 2003 and Vista.
Download Beta 1.4.20 (June 2, 2007)

  • Added pastebin upload option. See for example
  • Added Zip file support (Don't extract Future version will allow using zip or not.
  • Now works on the device lists in memory, in most cases will detect faster, expecially from older systems and slow drives (like floppies) at the expense of using more ram.
  • Improved Win9x detection (Thanks Cliff).
  • Finally fixed the crash that would happen on shutdown
  • Switched to usbdevs.txt from SIV. Future version will allow using either usbdevs.txt or usb.ids
  • Added more computer details like Chipset and product key
I also setup new forums! Visit, where you can post comments and bug reports about the site and Unknown Devices. As always you can still email me directly if you wish otherwise.

To help find unknown devices and figure out what they really are.
- Press F3 to search the selected text on the
internet. (Ctrl-F3 to search without the "+drivers")
- Press F2 or Ctrl-C to copy selected to clipboard
- Using an item under Full Details for a websearch
will likely give you better results

- This program only knows about PCI and AGP
devices. It will not be able to help with ISA based
devices and original PCMCIA cards.
- Also this program shows all devices found in the
registry including devices that no longer exists! Will
be fixed when I figure out how.
- This program might not display the unknown icon
for some devices even if Windows really doesn't
know what it is. If you see one please email me
with the EXACT name windows detects it as like
"Standard PCI Graphics Adapter" so I can add it.

PCI detection is provided by Craig Hart's pcidevs.txt. See his webpage at for updates to the file and more info.

This program allows to register/unregister DLLs using RegSvr32 tool which is included with Windows. This program is very easy even for beginners. Additionally, it shows a way to find windows\system directory location properly. A handy utility that will help you avoid the inconvenience of running regsvr32 from the start menu all the time.

Note that is always needed as it contains the device description files, SIV kernel drivers and the SIV resource DLL. The add-ons should be placed in the same folder as the files from
