I am following your advice
. I think we've gotten lost somewhere.
The other day I did a clean install of Windows to clean my computer up, without touching the partition. I immediately installed Chrome, my firewall, the discussed graphics driver and my anti-virus, which I had previously downloaded and stored on an external HD.
Today, at your suggestion, I formatted both partitions, including the 2gb OEM reserved one which I then deleted, and did another clean install. This did not take much time at all. Then I set about installing my firewall etc. again and shortly after that the error re-occurred.
I don't really know what else to say/do?
