After a few searches it looks like this is an error with the ati cat drivers. they remove the file but do not update it. Apparently it wasn't placed in the CC. I would extract the NB drivers and manually place the inf file in the inf directory. I you have a hard time uncompressing the driver package then the easiest way I've found to get the files is to start the install and while the files are uncompressing multi out and search for the files (usually in windows\emp\\??????????????.

If this doesn't work start a thread in the Os area and we can work on it.

Storm, I have Avast Home Edition. It can be downloaded by going here: http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html. When you install the application choose custom. That will let you select what components that will be installed.

Good luck

A great rule of thumb is when you initially install the Os and install all your core programs make a registry backup right then and you will always have a crisp registry to go back to. it doesn't matter how many times you add programs or drivers,The registry is what matters.

Also I keep backups of all my INF files. Believe me this comes in handy. You can copy the files onto other systems and install drivers without haveing to install a 100MB driver package.
Not a bad idea, I actually have system restore make a restore point eVery time I boot up . If its used properly, it actually works fairly well. The last time I reinstalled was because of hardcore data corruption due to memory timings
But since then I have learned (the hard way), to back up any data I would like to keep or is irreplacable (sp?). Live and learn I suppose. But I still dont bother with driver sweeper, Ive used it before and it really seems to make no difference what so ever.

Congrats BlackOmega on your first flame
I agree avast is the best

And thanx

Well, I will also be putting that to the test soon enough! I'm getting it for Christmas . I know of quite a few "high end" Intel rigs that struggle with it. So we'll see what my 5-6 year old Socket 939 machine can do with this latest "impossible to run" game.

I love doing that with my machine supposed impossible to run games and I seem to run the without any issues. S939 FTMFW!
