Windows 7: Can't reverse recent Windows update.

Checked this Noel. My mouse is no longer listed here as an Intellipoint mouse but as an HID-compliant mouse which I assume is just some generic thing. Also the roll back driver is greyed out.

Ah - may then you need to actually install the Intellipoint drivers

Okay, problem solved. Once I discovered that Windows update didn't just update my driver but wiped my driver off completly and replaced with with some generic rubbish I went onto the Microsoft site and downloaded the latest driver for my mouse and installed it effectively overwriting the other stuff. Working as usual again. Thanks for all the help, but why of why does Windows have to do this stuff?

ME's System Restore I could help you with - Windows 7's is a bit of a mystery to me too
First thing to do though is to reset it by switching it off, rebooting, and switching it back on (the old SR points aren't doing you any good, so you may as well get rid)

Cheers Noel, I'll try that. Still don't think it will work though. Enter Windows 7 System Restore not working and you find this going back to when Windows 7 came out.

System Protection Restore Points - Delete

System Restore Point - Create

Take a look through those two and see if it can help you.

Hi Bear. Yeah I have already turned off restore and deleted all the old restore points, rebooted the system, switched restore back on and created a restore point. I got a notice saying that it was created successfully so I'll try tomorrow to see if it will work.
