Windows 7 auto-driver update

Q: Windows 7 auto-driver update

Ok, I downloaded the ethernet drivers for my PC. But when I installed them, Windows 7 auto-updated the drivers to Microsoft ones. The drivers were made for Windows Vista, which may be the reason, but I don't think it is. It was for my graphics card. Note that the W7 ones weren't found on nVidia's website. I was stuck with 640 x 480 at 16-bit color.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Dear Lenovo Tech Support, Windows 10 Is the most annoying OS ever. It does havoc in my P40 Yoga, It automatically installs drivers that does not work well with the P40. Whenever I opened Firefox and tried to connect to a website or tried to connect to a different Wifi network, the screen would turn black for a couple of seconds and the mouse cursor would center it self in the screen, like some sort of a reset. I installed the original WiFi driver from Lenovo website and magically the problem stopped. It is unreasonable and even time consuming that I have to write this message and needed to reinstall drivers from Lenovo website because of this new idiotic OS.I demand, that you write a script and add an option to the Lenovo settings app that will prevent windows 10 from automatically updating it's drivers and replacing them with universal ones. Also I had an Impression that Lenovo is a professional company, that make sure their computers work well and error free, without annoying maintenance... well prove me right and kindly if it's not too much to ask, contact Microsoft yourself and make sure they stop auto-updating drivers and replacing them with universal ones. An addition, I would appreciate it, if kindly you will provide all needed drivers for the Linux community for the P40, I'm sick of WINDOWS!!!

Hello

I got a strange problem on a friends computer:

Hi, All! Hope someone can help me with a little problem concerning Windows XP Auto Update.

I have an old Dell Dimension that I've had in storage for a number of years. Recently I finally had the opportunity to get it out of mothballs and set it up again. After hooking it up and booting for the first time in 5 years, I updated to SP3 which updated the driver for my Nvidia GEForce4 MX 420 video card to version 52.16. Shortly thereafter I downloaded a video game which recommended a newer driver, so I went to the Nvidia site and downloaded the latest WHQL driver, version 93.71, dated Nov 2, 2006.

I have the XP Auto Update feature set to notify me of available updates but not to download or install. After installing the latest driver, the 93.71 version, I'm getting the Notification Icon on the task bar telling me an update for the Nvidia Card is available, version 52.16, I guess the basic update that was downloaded as part of the SP3 update.

Is there a way to dismiss this update so that it doesn't continue to appear? For some reason the auto update doesn't recognize there is a newer driver available, the WHQL 93.71.

Any Ideas?
Thanks for your help.

This was a nasty virus. I would attempt to run windows update but it would give me an error code and told me to check my connection. Norton would not update. Most free AV I could download but not update. When I would do any search on Google or MSN, it would redirect. It would also give me a google page does not exist if I went to a windows download update sit. After 2 days of working on this issue and using every AV I could find, I stumbled across a google group addressing this problem. It said to access this website, http://www.softpedia.com/get/Antivirus/Trojan-Remover.shtml This trojan was nasty but the program took about 5 minutes and cleared it.

Download Fatdog64. Burn the iso to disk by right clicking on a Windows 7 and later computer and selecting burn disk image. You can use Rufus with the iso to create a bootable USB flash drive. Backup any data on the flash drive first. Depending on your computer, attach the flash drive and tap the key to bring up the boot menu and select the flash drive or DVD drive.
 
At the Fatdog64 desktop you will see your hard drive partitions in the lower left labeled sda1..sda2..etc. Clicking once on the sdaX icon will open a File Manager. If you do not see your Windows files close out the window and select another sdaX partition. For Windows 10 the partition may be sda3. 
 
Once you have selected the correct partition attach a USB flash or external drive to the computer. A USB icon will appear next your DVD drive if you have one. Click once on it to mount and open another File Manager Window. Drag and move both windows until they are side by side. You can resize the windows by left clicking and dragging a corner.
 
Highlight the files/folders you wish to copy by holding the Ctrl key + left clicking. You can also Left Click and Window around the files/folders. Once you have highlighted your files/folders drag them from the HDD Window to the USB external Window. A small dialog window will open. Select Copy and check the Quiet box.

Also...I utilize Microsoft Outlook (not Outlook Express). Outlook Express allowed one to 'switch identities.' I have found no such option in Outlook. My wife and I have separate e-mail accounts under the same ISP, and Outlook has to be shut down and restarted to change over to her account.

Hey mates,

This is a very "beginner"question. I'm somewhat familiar with windows (not as much as I thought or wanted to be) , but basically the problem is this. Windows shuts down on a regular basis in the middle of work, quitting every program, reboots, and isntalls updates. I am pretty sure this is related ot the "action center" and whatnot, but how do I control that so that it
asks if it wants to restart (in the past, it asked to postpone 10 min, 4 hours etc) now it doesnt' seem to be doing that.
where I set how frequently it does that.

As we all know, Windows interrupts a shutdown, usually at the end of a day, to start downloading an update. I want to be able to delay this to give me time to create a Restore Point, in case the update messes up my machine (it does happen). Before I had Windows 7 clean reinstalled I had this set up so I know it can be done. (There are help files about delaying the automatic restart after an update but that is not what I want.)

So how can I delay the actual update please?

A:How to delay Windows auto update

The best way surely is not to have it set to automatic update at all, but to set it so you choose when to download and install. You then have as much or as little control as you want, and whether you install the updates altogether or in batches the process will automatically involve creating a system restore point before the installation starts. To change the settings go to System Security in the Control Panel.

I have just started to use Windows Defender on W8.1 and cannot see a way to get it to auto update without getting all the other Windows updates to auto update as well. I prefer to manage the general Windows updates myself and decide when (or if) to apply them. However, like other AV products, I would lIke it to update automatically.

Any thoughts on how to do this - it must be able to do it

A:Auto update Windows Defender

I thought it did by itself? First off, you can set windows updates to only install important updates, and uncheck the box that says give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates. That way you do not have to install recommended updates. Important updates should be installed no matter what, they protect your computer, etc.

If you don't want to do that, then see if it auto-updates despite the windows update being off, on its own. Give it a few days. If it does, you got it! If not, there is a high high chance you cannot do anything to keep it updated, as it is a built in windows feature

1.  Windows 10 upgrade completed and computer worked OK until it ran automatic updates.
2.  Now system tries auto repair at startup, cannot repair, then gives option to troubleshoot.
3.  System restore not an option.
4.  Go Back to previous build will not work.
5.  Reset of PC will not work.
 
Assume I will need to reinstall to factory default, but first need to copy user files.
 
1.  When going to command prompt, users, I only see public user so I don't see user documents to copy.
 
Right now main problem is to save user files and then reimage.
 
Does anyone have ideas of how best to copy user files so that I can move on with factory recovery.

Download Fatdog64. Burn the iso to disk by right clicking on a Windows 7 and later computer and selecting burn disk image. You can use Rufus with the iso to create a bootable USB flash drive. Backup any data on the flash drive first. Depending on your computer, attach the flash drive and tap the key to bring up the boot menu and select the flash drive or DVD drive.
 
At the Fatdog64 desktop you will see your hard drive partitions in the lower left labeled sda1..sda2..etc. Clicking once on the sdaX icon will open a File Manager. If you do not see your Windows files close out the window and select another sdaX partition. For Windows 10 the partition may be sda3. 
 
Once you have selected the correct partition attach a USB flash or external drive to the computer. A USB icon will appear next your DVD drive if you have one. Click once on it to mount and open another File Manager Window. Drag and move both windows until they are side by side. You can resize the windows by left clicking and dragging a corner.
 
Highlight the files/folders you wish to copy by holding the Ctrl key + left clicking. You can also Left Click and Window around the files/folders. Once you have highlighted your files/folders drag them from the HDD Window to the USB external Window. A small dialog window will open. Select Copy and check the Quiet box.

Running Belarc Advisor it told me of 4 critical Windows updates, namely KB2653956, 2656368, 2656369 and 2675157.
Going to Windows Update it indicated these plus one more KB890830 (be that as it may).
However it also stated that Automatic Update is On (as always) so how is it that I have never been informed that these updates were ready (as usual) to be downloaded and installed? Is it that Auto Update does not always work? Running Windows Update on another XP Pro computer I use on the same ISP, same router, indicated no updates needed.
Any advice please.

there is no reason to go to the registry. Anything you change in the GUI will be changed in the registry.
That being said, did you:

Hi Guys,
Windows 7 auto-updated last night, and left me with a big mess today.
A lot of windows services are not responding at all, will not open, some freeze ect...
It all started with windows getting stuck at the blue screen, something along the lines of preparing windows ect, do not shut down. It kept looping on restart.
I got it to finally get to windows but..
Windows Update (does not open at all)
System Restore Opens *but* I apparently do not have any restore points
Safe Mode with Network boots to a black screen (safe mode in all 4 corners though)
Microsoft excel does not open
Cannot uninstall Microsoft starter 2010
I deleted all files under c>windows>softwaredistribution>download
I downloaded the service pack 1 manually from Microsoft website, the .exe file will not run at all.
So there it is, I can browse the internet but most windows services do not run.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:A lot of Windows Services not responding after Auto-Update...Windows 7
