Windows 7: 82578DC Gigabit Network Adapter - Error Code 10

82578DC Gigabit Network Adapter - Error Code 10

Hello
Last night Win 7 did an automatic update and it's causing havoc with the network adapter. I'm not 100% sure what information you need but this is what I think will help. I'm hoping someone here can help me.

Adapter = 82578DC Gigabit adapter from Intel.

Core = i5 (I mixed up which cpu is in which comp)

Win 7 x64 Professional Service Pack 1

It was working last night prior to the automatic update from Windows without issue.

I downloaded and installed the latest software for that adapter. Version = 11.16.87.0 (date of driver Feb 2, 2012). The driver came as part of a PROSet Version 17.1.55.0 directly from Intel.

In the Network Connections Properties Tabs, I am told that the device status is, "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

I've tried easy things like uninstalling and re-installling, disabling and re-enabling. Turning the router on and off.

I hoping someone can help. Cheers!

The connection software often times will cause more problems than it solves. Have you tried uninstalling the connection software?

Have you tried to uninstall the latest Windows updates?

You might also try rolling back the driver to the previous version.

I uninstalled the connection software and let Windows find and install what it thought it needed. No avail.

I cant roll back to a previous version.

I would like to keep the existing Windows updates; however, if I can't, how do I undo them? I'll try looking for other solutions first though.
