Saitek is a high end, computer gaming controller company that produces anything from joysticks to radio panels and flight headsets. Often these devices are used for simulation games, especially for aircraft programs and games.
However, if you no longer plan on using the hardware on a given computer, you might want to remove the driver. Removing the driver speeds up start up and the system registry does not need to scan over the Saitek driver.
Click the "Start" button on the desktop, then choose "Control Panel." Wait a moment and the Control Panel window loads onto the screen.
Select "System and Maintenance," then choose "Device Manager." This loads a window with all the hardware currently installed on the computer.
