I will usa a Arduino Micro as a keyboard emulator to my CNC system (Mach 3).
Using xp and when I manualy try to install the driver the Xp can't find the driver.
I's a complete new machine.
I have tryed to install it on another PC xp, all works.
Same when I install on a Win 7 machine, all ok
I need to get my CNC machine running.
If I remove the bootstrap do I then need a driver?
Please help!

Check out "System Properties" and "Hardware" click <Driver Signing> and verify you are not blocked.  Make sure you are logged in as Administrator.

Can't really help with the driver issue but are you trying to do something special that requires an Arduino? There are a few button modules that will emulate a keyboard or you can use a xbox 360 controller with mach3. That gives you several buttons and you can use the joystick to move the cutting head

I have Checked the system properties, i's ok same on all computer that I have tested.
Also installed a XBOX360 controller for test, fantasic!
If I installed the Arduino Micro direct in the USB port it works, via hub it will not work. Askk for driver and it will not acept the driver.
Tryed to burn the software via Atmel studio 6, but I am not shure to remove the Arduino bootloader, can anybody help me?

If you burn any hex file to the microcontroller, the bootloader will be over-written and you will have to burn the bootloader back on to enable sketch uploading capability.
