RTLSDR help? RTL2838U and SDR?

Buyer beware! David, G4ASR reports that he ordered the same USB stick using the details in my previous post and when he installed his device, it shows up as an RTLSDR/RTL2838U which SDRSHARP does not recognise. We can see some references to this chip working under Linux, but not under Windows.

Does anyone know if this can be made to work with SDRSHARP or indeed any other SDR software working under Windows?
