Have a read through this HUGE :) thread.
Some pesky spyware has probably changed the offending registry key, and the pc doesn't have permission to display the Device Manager contents anymore.
Would be worth making a back up of your registry if you're not feeling confident about delving into the registry, although it does look pretty simple to fix.
