Windows 7: W7 x64 Driver Bundle

W7 x64 Driver Bundle

I came across a bundle of drivers specifically designed for Windows 7 x64, most of which I have no interest in, but 1 or possibly 2 appear to be higher updates than I found elsewhere, particularly the nForce 4 chipset drivers.

I have spent a majority of the day downloading these, because I only found them on servers that attempt to nag you to pay them to download their files, in this case Hotfiles and a variety of other problems. They had the drivers split into 6 rar files, of which the last was slightly smaller than the rest and it downloaded at a much, much higher speed than the ones preceeding it.

Once downloaded, I used PowerArchiver to do a multi-extraction of them, but 3 times it popped warning windows of CRC errors, all of which appeared to involve only the 6th rar, so I downloaded it again, but PowerArchiver popped the same CRC warnings again. I decided to let it proceed anyway, and it produced an ISO, but since I only want the 1 driver in particular, I extracted the ISO also.

Scanning through the files and folders that was produced, I found nothing that specifically appeared to be the nForce 4 driver, so I clicked on the setup.exe, and the wizard that it produced was totally egnimatic to me. I'm not certain, but I think that it wanted to install everything in the download, because I saw no way to pick and choose. The check boxes in the top right pane will not permit to to selece or deselect any of them. Since I don't know what would happen if I experimented with this, I aborted the setup altogether, and came here to see if anyone understand this?

It appears that the operation that it shows pending in the top right pane is due to the fact that while rumaging through the files, I clicked on this one, and it appeared to go through an installation, but never announced the final status.

If it were mine, I would make a system image, in case the solution back fires.

First I would try cc cleaner, to clean up that junk on the hard drive

if that does not work. I would do a system restore which would definately do the trick. System restore will not affect any of your personal documents, pics etc. Think about it, and then decide. Good luck Richard

I just ran a System Restore, because fortunately the driver install did creat a new restore point, so nothing else was effected, but that still doesn't answer my question about how to run the update for nForce 4, without it trying to install a bunch of other drivers that I don't want. I was hoping that someone had actually dealt with this specific kind of update bundle before, and new what to expect from it.
