Windows 7: ethernet, USB and wireless controllers not working

ethernet, USB and wireless controllers not working

So im currently using Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. My laptop is an Asus f3sv-x1, an older model dating back aug 2007, but it works with windows 7 until recently... While Asus doesnt officially support this particular model with windows 7 drivers, i was able to easily grab the drivers off microsoft. Everything worked nice and smooth until a recent windows update that i installed. Basically every time i restart or shutdown my pc, my ethernet, Usb, and wireless adapter drivers will not load during startup or start. To be more clear, i went into device manager only to find out that there are exclamation marks next to the network adapters and USB controllers. Each device has the cannot start code (10)
The funny thing is that if i unistall the drivers or disable/enable them, they would automatically download from microsoft and it would work. Like i said before, this would only occur when i restart or shutdown my system. It's such a hassle to constantly unistall/enable the drivers everytime i restart or turn on the pc. I dont want to reformat because i just prefer not to.. Any advice out there?
System specs:
Asus f3sv-x1
4gb DDR2
Nvidia Geforce 8600m GS
WD 320GB 7,200 RPM

This happened to me on a fresh install. I had to roll back the ethernet driver and hide the update causeing the problem so it would not happen again. Hope this helps. Good luck.
