Windows 7: Windows 7 doesnt show my 8800 gt card

Windows 7


Every driver windows has ever installed, (without uninstalling properly) is stored there. Its linked to the driver rollback function. needless to say its a pain in the ass when uninstalling drivers if you happen to overinstall often as it'll just install the last dated driver stored in file repository.

at default, only trustedinstaller/system has permissions over that and the folders contained within.

the owner is trustedinstaller making it difficult to remove drivers from without screwing up the folder permissions and making it insecure.
