    Now i found an entry called "Device Simulation Framework 1.0" in uninstall program windows in control panel. And i uninstalled it .Now the unknown device disappears. I don't know if it's a dependency of other programs. I hope no~ _(:з」∠)_

    Did you make a Restore Point first? If you did or have a recent one you can run it if something stops working.
    Most likely you won't need it.

    Yes, good have restore points. I never stated to delete it or uninstall it, as we do not know if you are or were using it and just wasn't hooked up or in use at time. Good reason you get this in Device manager. I am not familiar with this device simulation framework to advice you on it more, not much info on it, as it seemed like an older thing used before Windows 8.

    Like MilesAhead said if notice something happens afterwards, had no restore point whatever it was used for will not work.
    Next time wait till you know more about something before decide to delete it, cause then you will most likely have to do a reset or refresh, unless you had a restore point.

    You're right, it's a good habit to have a restore point before i do something like this. Thanks for you advice
