That is strange indeed, unless system restore was making a back up at the same time you were trying to install the drivers.

whats more strange is the fact that i cannot really install the driver. first it installed the old ones, then restarted. tried to install the new ones, but at first it always gave me the message "the pc has to be restarted now" after several restarts and uninstalls of the drivers (win7 always kept reinstalling some? that somehow kept the installer in that restart-thingie) it finally tried to install - but the installer always times out with an error-message and those damn drivers just won't install on my rc.

That's because those drivers were made for the newer RTM not the RC. My Asus Xonar drivers for the RC wouldn't run in the RTM without a patch. They made some pretty heavy changes to the sound between the two it seems. Try and find the RTM if you can.

i got the rtm via the msdnaa, but there are no language packs working for it.
