I was checking device manager and found a couple of faded devices.

I remember there was a feature on driver booster 8 which cleaned "unplugged device data." Everyday no matter what they kept showing up so it seems they are automatically generated for some reason.

Are these generally safe to keep and won't affect performance?

Those look like usb devices - mice, keyboards, webcams, usb hubs or similar
Any time you connect some usb device to a different usb port, one such item or multiple (depending on particular device) will be created.

Havig those items in Device Manager devices list should not impact anything.

Thanks, the same goes for any other "ghost" drives, items or whatever?
