Windows 7: CPU heat

12 Nov 2012   #11

Windows 8 64-bit (6.2, Build 9200) (9200.win8_rtm.120725-1247)

For virus scanning, I would recommend installing and updating Malwarebytes, then booting your computer into safe mode, F8 at boot up, then run a full scan and let it remove any infections.

7 Pro. 64Bit w/SP1

Earlier today I ran Windows Defender Offline ... No problems found.
Then I ran MemTest86+ ... no problems found.

Something went haywire b/c Windows would not boot-up at all, so I decided to do a complete reinstall from scratch. This time everything went nice & smooth, no hickups whatsoever & all updates went through w/o any problems as well. All seems fine now except I still cannot update my System Rating, the computer freezes during 'Windows Media Playback'.

Are your video card driver up to date, and did you grab the Windows Media Player updates, some of them have to be received by opening Windows Media player and choosing the check for update in the menu. If not mistaken it updates Media Codecs that way.

7 Pro. 64Bit w/SP1

I looked in Device Manager & I don't have the latest driver for my card (Radeon HD 6670) but when I checked AMD's website, both AutoDetect & Manual want me to install Catalyst. I don't want Catalyst, just the main driver; how do I get this?

Also, Can I check for Media Player updates w/o having to actually open/use the program?

for the media player updates you have to open media player, as for the drivers, you can install catalyst, and just stop it's startup process so it doesn't load with windows.
