*Solved* I Need help - Win 7 - losing drivers after shut down/reboot - Page 2

post #11 of 14
What kind of security software are you using? Sounds like an incorrect shutdown or uninstall might have corrupted it. Either way looks a lot more like a corruption than malware. Your best option is to do a system restore to the point where it did not encounter these problems or failing that an in place repair install.

I'm gonna go ahead and start uninstall every windows 7 update, until i find which one caused it

The system restore options are too recent nothing is before december :/ so i can't use it

Going to start uninstalling all the ones with:
Update for Microsoft Windows
Update for Windows 7 x64-based Systems
Hotfix

And if none of them do it, then I'll start with the Security Updates... this sure is going to take me a whole long time... I know it would be faster to simply back up the current data & format re-install and not do any updates... but I would prefer the system having the latest updates & finding the exact one that caused it - or the other only option.. going to xp

Found it! smile.gif

It was one of the Update for Windows 7 x64-based Systems(it was one I installed on October), I forgot to write down the number/letters but oh well now I know I won't update for those ones.

Rep to all for helping out
