Windows 7: Unload a driver at shutdown and load it at startup

08 Feb 2009   #1

Windows 7 Build 7100 64-bit
Unload a driver at shutdown and load it at startup

Hello, I recently installed something called libusb, but when I shutdown I get the "blue screen of death", so I wondered if I'm able to unload libusb when I shutdown and load it when i start again.

And no, I must have it, so I can't uninstall it

Well unless anybody has a better idea and if you cant live without it.

Go to services and set it to autostart (If it doesnt cause problems on bootup)
That will load it automatically on boot.
You will then have to stop the service manually (from services again) before you shut down.
Not very good if you reboot a might be a temp solution.
I don't know of a way to have it unload automatically before shutdown...
