Windows keeps loading game point drivers when I start a game.

I have a little problem I hope someone can help me with. When I start a game Windows minimizes the game and loads joystick drivers and asks to reboot. I removed the joystick and all the software so now it just installs generic game port drivers instead. This is has only recently started happening. I thought it was just one game but it's happening with more now. Is there any way I can stop it?

Thank you kindly.

Howdy Phil5000,
If your joystick is tied to your sound or video card, and you are installing the more modern "fancier" games, you may need to update your card drivers (in general, it sounds like a driver issue overall).
