Windows 7: auto reboot when installing or uninstalling software

Give it a good workout to see if it differs any with the factory chipset.

Your checklist should be the Device Manager - are there any missing devices?

Use Win7 installer and Updates drivers unless performance dictates changing them.

Both the Puran defrag method and the command line defrag method are fine. I just spoke with gregrocker about it. I did not want to recommend it without knowing more about it first. He says he has never had problems with it nor seen others have problems, and he is one of our top Windows optimization experts. I trust his judgment.

In reading your post again however, I then realized that perhaps you meant only the USB drivers and nothing else.--if so, Oops. Anyhow, also from the asus website what remains is:
RTL8111BCRTL8112L_LAN_V735222009_Win7
and
SATA--Marvell9123-9120_V1001042_XpVistaWin7
and
VIA_Audio_V6018700a_XpVistaWin7
and what remains from the Windows Update site is:
Realtek - Network - Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller
and
Update for Windows 7 x64based systems (KB2709981)
and
Viewsonic - Display - Viewsonic VX2453 Series
Do I continue with the above? Or?
Attached is my new msinfo32 file (after the above updates and reboot).
Oh! And about the partitions -before I turn my partitions E: and F: into one must I 1st move the files from one into the other?
Your drivers are all clean now. Probably no need to install anything unless you are having any problems with any devices. You can install the Realtek LAN drivers if you want to; they won't hurt anything if they are up to date, and it will keep Windows Update from annoying you. The driver from ASUS is probably best. I usually recommend drivers from the motherboard support site over Windows drivers, although in this case, I imagine they are the same drivers.

Don't take that to mean all manufacturer drivers take precedence over Windows Update drivers, though. I have an ATI graphics card that the more up to date drivers cause issues, and the one Windows recommends works better because it is an older card. For motherboard drivers, it is best to get them from the motherboard's manufacturer support site if you can.


On that note, what audio drivers do you have installed? Any issues with your audio? I know the generic audio drivers for my laptop cause a popping sound during Windows startup that makes me nervous it will damage my speakers, so I always install the Realtek audio drivers (yours are VIA, mine are Realtek) as soon as possible.

If you are not having any audio issues, do not install the drivers yet. We want to install as little at a time as possible to see how the system performs after each set.

OK i will install the lan drivers by ASUS and not by windows. As to the audio drivers, the ones I have are what Win7 placed. Am I having any issues? none what-so-ever but I think, maybe, just maybe the sound was a little better before.
So for now, besides the above lan I will also install the viewsonic display drivers from windows which is for my monitor. but nothing else.
For now I will not install:
VIA_Audio_V6018700a_XpVistaWin7
SATA--Marvell9123-9120_V1001042_XpVistaWin7
Above from ASUS
I will not install:
AMD Catalyst Display Driver--12-3_vista_win7_64_dd_ccc.exe (this has many things including sound)
from AMD
and won't:
Realtek network PCIe GBE family controller from windows

hiya boys--had a nice holiday I hope. OK I was told to install things slowly and s - l - o -w - l - y I did. Here's my update. I installed and only installed legal software. I also only installed well-known software with a known reputation--no demos, no betas etc. I also installed less stuff than last time. Since then, 2 months ago all has been going smooth except for one thing. After the re-installation of windows I recall doing my first search and in asking to catalog the search I chose not to. Whether is due to this or not the only odd behavior of my PC since then is its speed when I choose to do anything that is ion a different drive. For ex. I am working on a Word document. (Word and all software was installed in C I then click on my D: drive. I have to wait 5 seconds or so for it to open and show anything. I can also hear the drive start spinning as if it were sleeping before. This very slow behavior is nothing I experienced b4 with this PC. Any clues?
And then in the last 10 days or so I installed a few things within days of each other: Adobe university suite and along with it some Photoshop plugins and related software., CCleaner and a game. Yesterday when trying to update via the windows update page windows defender definitions it crashed. I tried 2X the same thing. Since this crash I installed some antivirus/malaware stuff with no problems. Uninstalling the game created a crash as well. Any opinions now?

What speed are the HD's?

Install CrystalDiskInfo Software to get SMART readings on each HD.

Uninstall your AV and install Microsoft Security Essentials which should shut off Defender. If not turn it off in services.msc.

Taking the same time and great patience work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

window in/uninstall crash issues

Since with the slow installation of software and drivers up until recently all went well I, logic would narrow it down to whatever was done in the last few days. My idea then is this--yet again do a clean reinstall and stop at where I was a few days ago. one thing I will not do is use CCleaner just in case that may be the culprit. I will install nothing further except for my Adobe suite and only 1/2 of the Photoshop stuff i had installed. At that point I will sit and wait, as I have now. If something does happen I will then assume 1 of 3 things--1-my PC can't handle past a certain amount of installed apps-2-the problem lies with the Photoshop plugins/ extra software -3-hardware issues
Having said that I went to the link provided here months ago for the clean install Windows ISO image (from Digital River) and it is 13 months old. Is there not anything newer?
BTW attached are the CrystalDiskInfo5_0_4Shizuku-en files created via windows Snipping tool since i could not see how to save the info differently.
thanks buddy

Confirm you have 12gb RAM detected at Control Panel>System. If so this could be a problem with mismatch if you upgraded earlier, or even a bad stick. Test your RAM - Test with Memtest86+ following the steps to test both sticks and slots.

Rather than reinstalling you should be able to get before the problem started using System Restore

Memtest86 was used before, (see page 4 here) and all was ok except for a CPU overheating (long story omitted for now). So the memory sticks and slots were all OK.
As to using restore I have and things are better but not perfect. I restored but only to a certain point, even though there were earlier points. Going any earlier then that well, I'd rather just start over with a clean slate there eliminating as many doubts as possible. I consider this to be a life lesson to me, so once I get this all over with I will NOT repeat the same mistakes again, and if not my fault, then will be more ready and better informed as to what to do--this of course is, in large part, all thanks you both gregrocker and writhziden. I am truly grateful beyond words.
So, as mentioned, is there a newer version of the win 7 ISO for me to download?

Not than that in Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River My Digital Life.

You need all Important and Optional Updates as well. They should soon be rolled up in SP2, hopefully along with some of the explorer improvements in Win8.

the digital life link u gave is the digital river one I was referring to and it dates: Aug 10, 2011. This date is shown directly above the subject heading to the left of it. I'm assuming therefore that based on this date the files too are from then or before. Is this my only choice then? Is there any way to verify based on the file name, (X17-58997.iso, in my case) as to how old it may be. As to the SP2, any idea as to when this would be? and once this is out does this mean a new ISO would be available as well (at the same time or thereabouts)?
