Windows 7: Won't install update drivers

Won't install update drivers

I have been trying to install a Kodak 6150 AiO but it won't install the driver. I did a test and found the same error when ever I tried to "update" a driver on any thing. It says "Windows encountered a problem installing the driver for your device" "Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it." "The system cannot find the file specified." This is happening on all the devices that I checked. Maybe I fat fingered a switch or something. Anyone, PLEASE HELP. Joe

You can't rely on Windows to find the updated device drivers for your computer. I would update the chipset portion of your device driver set then go from there. I suggest you start with Driverstorer: What are device drivers? A quick device driver installation guide.

Driverstorer is a great device driver download and install help site.

Hi,

As well as the above, I'd recommend downloading MalwareBytes and run a full system scan just to make sure you're not infected.

Thank you all. I ran the program to revert to a previous Image backed from February 23rd and other then loosing some e-mails all else seems to be OK. This problem is now clear.
