Unknown Device Installed

Hi, I had an "Unknown Device Installed" window coming up at start up, and hope to get some advice here.
Here's what I did:
- I tried to remote log in to my other computer via logmein.com (I've been using it for a long time)
- I was prompted to grant user account control rights to install an active x control, so I did that
- Then another pop up came up saying that "A website wants to open web content using this program on your computer". The program is an AVG scanning module (avgcsrvx.exe) that belong to my AVG, so I clicked allow.
After that, I rebooted my PC, and once it's been rebooted I see a window titled "Driver Software Installation", with the content:
Unknown Device installed
The software for this device has been successfully installed.
Unknown Device Ready to use
I haven't initiated any installation, and the only devices I have connected are my mouse and my scanner, both of which have been installed for a long time.
I restarted in Safemode to look at my system restore points, no installation/updates are reported for today.
I ran Spybot & Destroy, as well as Malware Bytes, and nothing came up.
Is there any way to find out what unknown device was installed on my machine?
And, does this look like a malware?
I have Windows Vista, using IE7.
Many thanks for your help! Really appreciate it.
