Win 7 Pro and Device Driver advice.

I’ve completed my build and am finding the OS to be unstable. Doing a little poking around at the device drivers I see multiple instances of several of them in Device Manager. For example: Processors; there are 8 instances of - INtel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770K CPU @ 3.50GHz. Under the Human Inderface Devices I also has multipal instances of several drivers and agiain in Keyboards.

I suspect this is incorrect and am wondering if I can just uninstall the duplications?

Thanks in advance for all advice.

A 4 core CPU with hyper-threading will show 8 instances. That is perfectly normal. Do not uninstall it.

Perfectly normal. Some devices, such as remotes, has several features/functions, so operating system will list one for each of it's capabilities.
