I am on Windows 8.1 and I have never faced such an issue, but still thanks for the warning.

It caused all sorts of issues. If your on Win 8.1 be warned!!!

I didn't like the look of it when it showed up in Win Update, so I just hid it, thanks for the heads up anyway!

If you look in the device manager you might find multiple instances of the driver under the ACER device. Deleting all of the "greyed out" (ghost) ones may resolve the problem. Otherwise deleting them all and then connecting the device should work. If not, delete the device under Portable devices, then connecting your device will clear up the problem.

And yes, that update was an unexpected a$$-kicker. It knocked out N5 and N4 too.
