John,

Thanks for getting back to me, I'm wondering if driver max is asking you to do a system restore before up dating ?

If not it might be a good idea to create a restore point before each up date.

Thanks
Joe

Yes, before each download it creates a restore point.

Well done so far, uninstall the program when completed. This may or may not resolve the issue if not then we run Harddrive tests etc to see if it's a possible Hardware problem.

See two attached jpgs.

 

First shows five drivers installed. I rebooted. And the reboot failed. So I had to go back to the restore point. The second shows where I am now. I will install the Standard Enhanced PCI to USB driver next.

Want me to try installing that driver update again?

Well, I tried. But it refused to download any drivers, see attached jpg.

 

When I clicked Update Driver Max, it downloaded a program that has a fee. Don't want to pay for anything if I don't have to.

Somewhat better, but a difficult problem to resolve since the problem appears to come an go.

I'd like to scan the hard drive when time permits.

Please run chkdsk
To do that;

Click start, in the search box type cmd, now up towards the top right click on cmd and choose "Run as Adminstrator"
In the Command Prompt window type chkdsk c:/r and press Enter.
Please Note the space between k c:/r
  • The next dialog box will now show the following:

    Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another
    process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be
    checked the next time the system restarts? <Y/N>
  • Type Y
  • and reboot the computer.
  • Checkdisk will start once the computer reboots. It can take up to an hour or more to complete as it goes through the stages. Allow it to run uninterrupted till complete.[/list] To find the log that is produced please do the following:

    Please download ListChkdskResult by SleepyDude to the desktop.

  • Double click on the icon and click Run
  • The log will appear on your desktop as a .txt file and the notepad will open. Please copy and paste the results in your next reply.

Hello,

Lets run an online malware scan and see what it shows, this scan could take a long time start an an walk away. Or start an go to bed......


Note: You can use either Internet Explorer or Mozilla FireFox for this scan. You will however need to disable your current installed Anti-Virus, how to do so can be read here.
  • Please go >>HERE<< then click on: ESET1st.jpg

    Note: If using Mozilla Firefox you will need to download esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe when prompted then double click on the ESETexe.jpg icon to install.

    All of the below instructions are compatible with either Internet Explorer or Mozilla FireFox.
  • Select the option YES, I accept the Terms of Use then click on: ESETsave.jpg
  • When prompted allow the Add-On/Active X to install.
  • Make sure that the option Remove found threats is NOT checked, and the option Scan archives is checked.
  • Now click on Advanced Settings and select the following:
    • Scan for potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth Technology
  • Now click on: EOLS3.gif
  • The virus signature database... will begin to download. Be patient this make take some time depending on the speed of your Internet Connection.
  • When completed the Online Scan will begin automatically.
  • Do not touch either the Mouse or keyboard during the scan otherwise it may stall.
  • When completed make sure you first copy the logfile located at C:\Program Files (x86)\ESET\Esetonlinescanner\log.txt).
  • Copy and paste that log as a reply to this topic.
  • Now click on: EOLS4.gif
    (Selecting Uninstall application on close if you so wish)

I've tried twice. Doesn't work. Explanation:

 

1. You instruction is Please go >>HERE<< then click on: ESET1st.jpg

But I don't see that button. What I see is in the attached jpg.

 

2. You instruction is

  • When prompted allow the Add-On/Active X to install.

But I don't get that prompt.

 

So no wonder that it doesn't work. Any advice?
