Windows 7: BSOD irql_not_less_or_equal

I got the same error as before. It does look like the same file (same size and name).

I appreciate the help, no 'bearing' felt.

Have you been uninstalling the current driver before attempting to install the new one?

No, I haven't. Should I?

Also, not about bsod but your posts. Again, when I looked at it (but wasn't logged in), the word driver had a link sending me to tweakbit... which I referred to above. I almost installed it but asked about it first. Isn't that strange? See attached and how the word is in blue.

I certainly didn't post that link. It sounds as if your browser may be infected. Download both MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware linked in my signature and run full scans with both. Report back with the results.

Note   Note
Make sure you uncheck the 'Enable Free Trial' box when installing MalwareBytes.

The link does not show when logged into this forum. I've run MalwareBytes both yesterday and today. Do you think I should reinstall? Will get SuperAntiSpyware now. I do have SpywareBlaster.

So you only see the link when you're not logged in?

Does that mean it is intentional then? Not on my side, I mean. Malwarebytes was clean. Some tracking cookies which I have now removed from SUPERAnti, but nothing else.

So back to topic... should I have been removing the original graphic driver before installing the replacement?

Yes, intentional.
Correct, not on your side.
It is not a sign of an infection.


It will not hurt to remove the current graphics driver before installing the replacement. Give it a shot.
