Windows 7: Obscure drivers keeping Win 7 sleepy

Obscure drivers keeping Win 7 sleepy

If my Win 7 machine goes to sleep and I try to wake it, it has forgotten how to find anything on the Internet until I do a restart, then all is well until sleepy time again.
Performance Information and Tools tells me that three nearly identical drivers are causing Windows to resume slowly. Don't know if that has any connection to the lost ability to connect.
These drivers are all named: Windows Driver Foundation-User-mode Driver/Framework Reflector and the only difference between the three is that one is a USB CF Reader, another a USB MS Reader, and the third is a USB SD Reader.
I have updates set to automatic and to include drivers. These drivers are all published by Microsoft, so I don't know why they aren't being updated.
I really don't care about the slightly slow part, I just don't like having to restart in order to log on the Web.
If anyone thinks these drivers might fix the lost Internet connection, please tell me how to update them.
By the way, I am connecting through a Linksys router. When I had Vista on this machine I had no such problems so I think something about Win 7 is not compatible with something in my 'puter. I tried to do a firmware update on the Linksys router, but never could get it done.
Thanks for any help.

Are you running homegroup?

If not disable IPv6 in setwork and sharing.

I would also check event viewer to see whats happening during the "slowness"
to get to event viewer type event vwr in search and go to the windows log>application tab, and the system tab. Look for error (they have red in the left column) that relate to app hang, app crash, etc. there will be a bunch so you might want to wait untill the next ime it happens to narrow the amount of things you need ot look for

Hope this helps

Is there a utility, preferably freeware, which can a) scan my system to find devices, b) go to the manufacturers' web-sites to see if there are more recent driver version, and c) do this from Windows (as opposed to boot time, safe mode, etc)?
