First thing lets lower the amount of space system restore is using.
Follow the next set of instructions and lower the space to 1% please.

If you would like to make System Restore use less disk space, here's how:

Go to Start>> Control Panel
Double click the System icon
Click the System Restore tab
If you have a single partition, click the Settings button and reduce the disk space allocation by sliding the bar to the left. If you have multiple partitions, select the partition and then click the Settings button. Again, sliding the bar to the left reduces the disk allocation.
When finished, click OK

The next thing I would like to see you do is Download DriverMax and have it scan your system. It will open their website with all the out of date drivers you can update. With the free version you can update only 2 drivers per day so if you have a lot of them it will take a few days to get everything updated. I have been using it for about 4 months now and like it better then any other utility out there for keeping my drivers up to date.

I downloaded DriverMax & installed, can't run a scan without email verification.
I've tried different email accounts, still haven't recieved anything from them.

Maybe there having issues.
I'll keep trying.

Thanks

No I don't get emails from this topic saying I have a reply.
I didn't know that I could, is there a setting under account preferences?

In regards to DriverMax, I can't run the application with getting an email
from them. When I try to scan a window pops open saying: "You have not validated your account yet."
For some reason I'm not receiving any email from them.

Thanks.

I finally got the verfication from DriveMax & ran the application.
According to the scan I have 25 outdated drivers, wow!

In regards to receiving notifications from this forum, I changed my email to another one.
Should work now, I think there's problems with my previous email.........stupid me.

Thanks again.

OK as I noted in the instructions with the free version of DriverMax you can only update 2 drivers a day. My suggestion is if one is the chipset driver make sure that is the first one you do.
From there start at the top of the list and go down.
BTW did you get the System Restore space lowered to 1% yet?

Hi again ledger

Clear your IE Cache of 284 MB and your Recycle bin of 327 MB.

These two drivers need updating.
Sound: Realteck High Defintition Audio
Network adapter: Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller

Download the latest Windows updates.

I notice you have µTorrent installed. You choice of course, but using P2P software is a great way to install malware onto your PC. Consider removing µTorrent.
