Windows 7: Device driver installation will not see the hardware

When I followed the instructions (easy to follow, well wrtitten) it made no difference to the nothingness within the "Change Adapter Settings" window. I even restarted the PC and checked the registry. That key is gone

This legible? While restarting the PC (see above) I reenabled the adapter in the BIOS. That odd one disappeared and was replaced with something else. I'll get a shot of that like this attachment if it worked for you

You found the driver I used for the CT adapter. Made no difference which driver set I used, the result was the same.

Here is a shot of the controllers with the onboard enabled.

Onboard is off, only one controller now in device manager. Don't know why that odd controller was showing up earlier when the onboard was off then as well.

Noticed in Network & Sharing Center to the right of the network icon (2 PCS hooked together) is Unknow in boldface. Below it is "The dependency service or group failed to start"
