Windows 7: Drivers being deleted by something in Windows 7

Drivers being deleted by something in Windows 7

I have a strange situation. Every week or so, my monitor driver is getting deleted and replaced with the standard MS " NonPNPMonitor" Driver. I can replace it with the right driver but it keeps getting deleted on it's own. I know the person that uses the computer is not deleting it. It doesn't seem related to reboot but I guess it could be happening. My systems are set to reboot at 6am so I am not here to see what happens. I am using the most current and correct driver. I have reinstalled this 6 times in 2 months. Can anyone enlighten me as to how to fix/stop this annoying situation?

all or none

Hi,
Unfortunately the only solution is all or nothing.

Go Controlpanel>system>advanced>hardware>dissable windows driver check.

Well, I turned off the auto driver install and this morning the driver was again replaced with the Microsoft generic driver. It's funny cuz it wont even let me roll back driver. It's greyed out as if there was never a driver installed but I know I did it the other day. Anything else anyone can think of to fix this mess?

As a matter of interest can you goto windows updatelogs and post the details since you followed my instructions.

I have Languard doing my windows update. I will have their tech support see if we can stop it. Whats funny is there were no updates scheduled to install on that date. Perhaps I will uninstall the agent on that computer for a month and see what happens. Thanks for all the help Roy!
