Windows 7: Urgent Please:Windows cannot load the device driver for hardware.

08 Sep 2011   #21

Windows 7 64 bit

I need to thank all who the end I got an ISO of Win 7 and installed but chose the upgraded..seems choosing this function of the install program will restore all the old/new system files without damaging the registry or program. So after several hours and over 2300 various updates I am finally back to where I was..amazing eh..

Except: This is totally amazing..I get rid of or I solve? USB problem and then this..

I would uninstall ESET and use MS Security Essentials or Avast 6 with the Windows Firewall.

While ESET AV protection can be good almost everyone here recommends those two freewares and we solve many problems such as this by having users change over.
