Windows 7: Windows killed 1394 Firewire connection?

Windows killed 1394 Firewire connection?

A brand new computer with Windows 7 Vista Ult 64 bit, in December upgraded to Windows 7 Ult 64 bit . Everything worked fine except for the firewire connection. Right from the clean installation it went wrong. Backup using firewire caused the computer locking up, BSDís and loads of errors. I found/find 3 drivers in the device-manager:
a- 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller
b- 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller (old version)
c- VIA 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller
Nr a, lockes up the computer, the backup on the external drive freezes after 30 seconds causing critical errors
Nr c, works at a speed of 50% of the USB connection ( 10MB and far to slow) and causes a load of warnings (reporting the external drive as damaged which it isnít)
Nr b, choosing the old one helped to solve all the problems temporarily, I could backup at a high speed using firewire, till this week Ö.as the Windows Updates spoiled the fun.
Today I tested the drivers and the result..Nrís a and b: lock up the computer, session not started , error 0x000000D and nr.c, backup succeeded at very low speed and with a load of ID 51 errors.
Did Windows killed the firewire again? And what to do to solve this because I would like to use the firewire connection.

I forced Windows back to use the old driver and tha resolved the issue. But apparently it created some other driver issues with the result a BSD ID 1001 and 1053. I am going to install all drivers again and see if that will resolve the ongoing driver issues I have with W7 64 bit Ult..
