Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver? A huge 37.1 GB!??!?

I have a Presario CQ61 Laptop. Compaq.

I was trying to clear some memory to make my laptop faster...and I found the Driver was the biggest. Do I really need this Accelerator? 37.1GB is HUGE!?

I can send you a photo if you want PROOF?
I can't install it? I click uninstall and nothing happens?
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium.

Welcome to the forum,

Yeah, a screenshot would be interesting, Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

By "clear some memory", I guess you are trying to make some room on your hard drive?

The driver you're talking about is for your display. why do you want to remove it?

If it's a single file it may be the installer. No single part of any graphic driver set should be anywhere near that large, but the installers can be (nvidias is about 100 meg!)

So if you want to get rid of the installer that should be fine... What is the file name that is that large exactly?

Wait... GB? or MB?

Yes that is insanely huge, like I said that is your display driver.

That is listed in programs and features right?

Do you have a 32 or 64 bit version of Home Premium?

What is the full model number of your Presario CQ61 ?

Is this yours Compaq Presario CQ61-119TX Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

Compared to the date of install you have listed.

It is only listed as 25 mb, can you see the intel folder in either of programs folders?

Printscreening will most definitely help you
It is in my program file (x86)

It doesn't show 37.1GB?

So I'm not sure what to do?
If I uninstall will I need to download another driver?

Yes if you uninstall it you will need another driver if you want to see your display.

If you right click on the intel folder in this screenshot...



And select properties, how much space is listed?

Are you asking me to printscreen something?
