Update 26/May/2010:
Also available as KB article http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=2025676

BEHAVIOR/SYMPTOMS:
====================
When you create a new web application and create a site collection you may see the below error when you browse the site in IE.

ERROR MESSAGE:
====================
Server Error in ‘/’ application
Parser Error Message: The browser or gateway element with ID ‘SKTDevicesSamSung’ cannot be found.

ENVIRONMENT:
====================
Office SharePoint Server 2007

CAUSE:
====================
When rebuilding browser capabilities  via aspnet_regbrowsers.exe, SKTDevices.browsers is excluded from asp.net 2.0 config browsers. Therefore, above SKTDevices was mapped to “Default” and will show an error.

RESOLUTION/WORKAROUND:
====================
Edit the compat.browser file in e.g. Notepad and remove these four browsers:

    <browser id="InfrawareSamSung" parentID="SKTDevicesSamSung">
    <browser id="InfrawareLG" parentID="SKTDevicesLG">
    <browser id="InfrawareSKY" parentID="SKTDevicesSKTT">    
    <browser id="InfrawareMotorola" parentID="SKTDevicesMotorola">

Remove these lines from the opening tag <browser...> including the line with </browser>.
