    Running Windows XP Pro SP3. Is there any way to tell the difference, by
    looking in Device Manager, the difference between a native Microsoft
    operating system plug and play driver and a driver from a third-party
    vendor? This question goes beyond the obvious, where one may see Intel
    under the network category or nVidia under the Video category. Major
    vendors like that we obviously know to be third-party.
