    enable/disable hardware in device manager from .NET

    ...Possible to do?
    I have a faulty XFi whereby if i turn on the computer and the Xfi is enabled, more often than not it will freeze on load and require a reboot to safe mode.
    I planned on making a utility that will disable the card on shutdown, and automatically re-enable on startup, doing away with the manual "fix"

    Does anybody know if this is possible even if it involves non-managed code?

    -willing to learn!
