Windows 7: Windows and programs run very slowly, please help.

Hi Megahertz07!
I tried to update drivers through the device manager but wasn´t able to do so. A few devices are outdated and I did also try to download them on the manufacturer´s website but after downloading I wasn´t able to install them. Also for some devices I couldn´t find any updates online. The outdated devices are the following:
Etron USB 3.0 Extensible Host Controller
Marvell 91xx SATA 6G Controller

Also a new category has been added which didn´t exist before the error. This new category is named "other devices" and when I click on it for more information I don´t get more information. These "other devices" are "unknown devices" according to the information. I tried to look for updates for them but it failed.

Any ideas what the problem might be and how to solve it?

Best

Look for the device id
It's something like this: PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&SUBSYS_E0001458&REV_15

Google the ID to find the driver

This is the device ID: PCI\VEN_1B6F&DEV_7023&SUBSYS_50071458&REV_01
I´ve googled it and it seems to be Etron USB 3.0 but the very same device is already listed with full name and description under "USB devices".

What am I to do about it?

Best

Thank you for the links but this is of no avail either.
When I try to install the Etron update I only get the message that I already have a newer version of the device and this is actually true. On the other hand there should be a possibility to install even newer updates.
This is the current version of my Etron USB 3.0: 1.0.0.119

As Device Manager shows that something is missing, I think you have the wrong driver.
I would uninstall the 1.0.0.119 driver and then install the 1.0.0.118

I fond this article: Etron USB Drivers Download and Update for Windows 10, 10, 8.1, 8, 7, XP, Vista | Driver Talent

As you also have a Etron SATA controller, maybe it also find the updated drive for it.

Just a thought.

Obit programs or products do cause problem.

My opinion.

Thank you Megahertz!
Now my drivers are up to date and there are no more unknown drivers
The only thing that is not up to date is my Marvell SATA 91 but from what I know there seems to be hardly any solution to this. Also startup takes still some long time and I´m not quite sure yet that the other problems really are solved. Besides that after the updates a text appear on the windows screen: Windows 7 Build 7601


Anyway thanks for your help

And what alternatives would you suggest if I may ask?

Let me explain a little more.
The company has a very bad reputation all over the world.
What I use for active security is the following.

1. Built in Windows 7 firewall
2. Microsoft Security Essentials
3. Malwarebytes Anti Malware Premium.

I have used that combination for years with very good success.
Their are many good security programs one can use, but IObit isn't one of them.
IObit programs have caused many to have to do Clean Install just to clean up the mess.
