Multimedia Keyboard driver has stopped working
However, all USB mouse devices stopped working again randomly after an hour of using the computer.
Going into device manager showed the unknown device as disabled yet the HID-Compliant Keyboard driver was back again.
Event viewer showed that the installation of the HID-Compliant Keyboard took place at the exact same time as when the mouse stopped working.
Plugging other mouse devices into the computer before the error occurs does not cause the keyboard driver to be installed.
I think it's a problem with the mouse itself.
If it has programmable buttons, then there must be a firmware on the mouse causing the issue since there are no windows drivers for it.
I've now tried the mouse on a mac laptop with OSX - installs the mouse driver along with an error about another unknown device being plugged in at the same time.
Yet another laptop with Linux - loads mouse AND keyboard drivers.
