Service responsible for adding/managing drivers

Q: Service responsible for adding/managing drivers


I have windows 8 installed, so someday Skype stopped working and there was a service preventing it from working, so i went to the safe mode, and copied the names of the services running under safe mode (because Skype worked there like a charm), but after some period i started having some trouble in various things, like file sharing on the network because the service was disabled, and now i cannot add a new device, like the driver of a huawei 3G internet key, or the microsoft virtual pc network driver.
Now im sure it has something to do with a disabled service, but i cant find which one responsible for the driver management.

Thank you.

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.)

A: Service responsible for adding/managing drivers

Hey mate,

Why are you sure it has to do with a disabled service?

Can you do a system restore?: System Restore - How to Do in Windows 8

If you are disabling services in services.msc, that is a very bad idea...

I think I may have disabled a windows service that tells me what was the specific error or reason for applications to crash because when some of my apps/games ( that are known to crash ) only reports a small box that says this program has stopped working.. I remember it should be giving me more info like "daorigins.exe has crashed bla bla bla"

A:Service responsible for detailed info on errors/crashes

I think you mean the Error Reporting Service. To change its settings do the following:

Click on Start, then select Control Panel, select System and Security, select Action Center, select Change Action Center settings, select Problem reporting settings, select Change report settings for all users, select one of the first 3 options, click on Ok button to apply the settings.

*Scratching Head*

I have a problem of losing all my shared folders of my not yet mounted drives every time I reboot. The problem is, I use TrueCrypt on a few drives and have folders shared on those drives.. So, windows never remembers those shared folders since I have not yet entered the password to mount them.

I was wondering if any knew what service it is that is responsible for shared folders? That way, I can set it to manual and start that after I mount my drives. And WAHLAH! Winders will then have all drives there to rememebr the shares..

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance...

Recently I had the motherboard of one of our Dell M710's replaced and we still need to set the Service Tag, the onsite engineer provided us with a tool, Asset.exe, which allows us to change the Asset Tag but not the Service Tag.
Right now it is blank.
Is there a procedure to install the Service tag?

A:Adding a Service Tag to a M710

When you F2 get into cmos if the tag is blank it will allow 1 Time and 1 time only for you to type the tag into the screen.  If you get the tag wrong you will not be able to change it again EVER.

Usually I look for answers to my questions on the www, but this time I really could not find the info anywhere.

Here's my problem:

I have a small webserver running on Win2k with a 1mbps ADSL connection as my pipe. Everything runs fine (www, ftp, mail, terminal services, DNS etc...) there's just one little thing that keeps on bugging me (a lot). I sometimes administer my computer from work when it's quiet with M$ Terminal Services (updates, install/remove programs, you know, the stuff I would rather not do when I'm physically in front of my machine, in a way, I get paid good money to administer my home server ). The BIG problem is that I sometimes need to reboot. Rebooting itself is not the problem. I start getting problems when I try to login after a reboot . You see, my ADSL connection requires a user/pass to connect. I installed the RASPPPoE protocol and unchecked the "prompt for usr/pass" checkbox in the options, but that does not solve my problem. I need www connectivity when I boot the machine, not when I login.

Basically, there just has to be a way to startup my ADSL connection as a system service... I hope... or else I'll have to get a cable modem and the only provider available here just plain sucks...

Please help...

A:Adding an ADSL connection as a service

Well I'm not sure about doing it that way, but I do know of a way you can do it in another way.

Go to your Network Connections and right-click on the DSL connection. Click Options and uncheck the options "Prompt for name and password" and "Prompt for phone number". This makes it so that when you click on your DSL connection it will automatically login without having to press ok even though your username/password is already in.

Now all you have to do is place the DSL connection in Programs/Startup. Once you restart your computer, the DSL connection will dial automatically when Windows is starting up.

I do this myself and it works fine.

I am using a Windows XP Pro PC as a server/router in my LAN setup. I have an ADSL connection which requires a username and password. I created the appropriate network connection (profile). I know how to put it in the Start Up folder but that means that some user (admin) would have to log-in every time after a reboot. Is there a way to make that network connection profile a system service which would start-up automatically after the PC rebooted without any user having to log-in ? Thanks.

A:Adding a network connection as a system service

No, I don't think so. You could have it auto-login for you, but that's probably not what you are looking for. You also would have been much better off installing Windows 2000 Advanced Server, or better yet, a Linux OS to run as your server...

Hello, and I hope everyone had a good weekend,

I have a basic XP Pro SP2 CD-based RIS image to which I have added NIC drivers for a Dell Optiplex GX620. Now I need to add drivers for a Dell Optiplex 320.

When I added the drivers for the GX620, I copied the contents of the downloaded drivers to the "\$oem$\$1\Drivers\Nic" directory and made the necessary mods to the .sif file according to MS's document: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315279. The reason that I copied the entire contents is because I do not know what files are needed for driver installation.

The problem I am facing is that there are folders and files in the drivers for the 320 that have the same name as folders and files for the GX620. I have not yet completed the setup of the GX620 to be able to create an image for it, so I don't want to get rid of the driver files from the image.

So, how can I add the new driver files to the image without overwriting the old driver files? The only thing that I could think of was adding a second OemPnpDriversPath statement to the .sif file, but will that cancel out the first statement?

Thanks for your help...


A:RIS help, please - adding NIC drivers to image

I would think that a new slipstreamed image for the 320 would save many headaches...rather than try to make a one-size-fits-all single image.

Hey Guys
Not sure if this is the right place but could do with some help regarding editing a WinPE.wim file.
I have mounted the file using the DISM command and added the driver.
I can see the folder in the mount directory and the driver etc is contained within the file structure.
I them unmount the folder back to the WIM file and copy it to the WDS server.

When i PXE boot the PC and load the boot image the driver does not load and when browsing the files loaded the driver folder is not displayed.

If i mount the WIM file again i can see that the folder and driver are present. 

Any ideas on what i'm doing wrong?

I was having trouble sharing my printer using Windows so I installed an old Linksys PSUS4 Print Server that I had.

With the printer connected to a server, I need to install the drivers differently.

The instructions say to go to Printer and Faxes and click on Add New Printer. Than go through the screens and select the "Local Printer attached to this Computer" option and uncheck "Automatically Detect..." than hit next again.

I'm than instructed to set up the port with the IP Address of the print server. No problem.

After that, the wizard says to select what printer you have. My printer is not listed in the available drivers section. And I can not get the "Have Disk" option to work. I currently have a HP PSC 2355 All in One printer.

Hello. I am updating an unattended Windows XP disk that we have here. One of the guys before me created the disk and he is no longer working here. I am adding new drivers to the I386\Drivers folder but in the process it makes the disk too large.

My main question is which driver files do I really need to add to the driver folder and which can I leave out? For example, when Dell provides drivers, they are .exe files (i.e. R114079.exe). Typically, we would need to extract that file to get the actual driver files and we could copy those to the unattended disk. When I extract the .exe file I will end up with several folders (i.e. Lang, win2000, win2003, XP) and several files (i.e. readme.txt, version.txt, csver.dll, install.cfg, setup.exe). Within the Xp folder, is over 50 files, mainly .inf and .cat files. Do I need all of those files and folders on an unattended disk or if I just copied over the "XP" folder, would that be enough? After all, the .inf files are located within the XP folder anyways.

Any input would be appreciated. Thank you.

I have a quick sysprep question. When adding drivers to the the WinPE install image using DISM, do I also have to add them to the other sections of sections so they are available for the OS later on such as using a distribution share? If I need to update or remove drivers down do I have to remake the image with a changed and updated.

A:Adding Drivers to Sysprep Image


Usually you don't need to add drivers to the WinPE image except RAID drivers. RAID/AHCI drivers which are added to the WinPE will be automatically integrated to Windows by the setup process. Other drivers like LAN, WLAN etc should be added to the install image but not to WinPE.

As far as i know, there is no reliable method to remove drivers. This is because Windows will rename added drivers as oem1 , oem2 etc. It will be harder to find which driver is which. So i would recommend keeping a backup copy of your customized image before adding drivers. When you need to add updated drivers, work with the backup copy and replace the current image with new one.

I need to inject some USB3 drivers for a PCIe internal USB3 card, so I can restore Win 7 64 bit from an external USB3 hard drive. The reason I need the card drivers is the motherboard suffered a pin damage to the dual USB3 port header and I installed a PCIe card to save buying a new motherboard. The drivers on the card CD are not in the form where they seem to have a .inf file, so I used Control Panel to look at the currently installed card drivers, please see attached screen shot. How do I "inject" these and another two fairly similarly named files during the run of the repair disk where it asks if you want to add drivers please? Thanks!

I've bought a Kingston 240GB V300 SSD. I want to install this in my Acer AD3920 i3 2100 processor Desktop. I want to use the SSD for Win7 and files that I use a lot. I want to retain the original 1TB Hard drive for storage. I assume that any SATA cable would be okay by what I read.

So I can install Win7 Pro 64Bit from a bootable USB that I have, I hope! What I want to know is will it be easy to then search my Hard Drive for the drivers. Last time I installed W7 I had a big problem finding the drivers. Any pointers would be really helpful.

Sorry this is a different computer from my System Spec

ps I'm not too good with computers ..........thanks

A:Adding an SSD and finding all the Win7 Drivers

You can follow this tutorial:

Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

You should go to Acer site and download the Ethernet (NIC) driver for your PC before you begin.

You can download other Acer drivers if you want to, but you likely won't need most or all of them because a legit Windows 7 install disc has the vast majority of drivers.

Did you download the files on that bootable USB stick from somewhere?

How do you intend to activate a new installation?

You might be able to transfer your current installation to the SSD through a cloning or imaging process, but a clean install is a good choice if you are willing to do it.

I'm creating images for several computers with different hardware.
The settings and applications should be the same on all machines, the only thing that really differs is the drivers needed.
I'm tempted to add drivers for all machines to the same image to only have to manage one image but I'm concerned that it might cause problems. What is the best practice here? Should I create one .wim for every different hardware configuration or can I have one .wim that holds drivers for all hardware configurations without any problems?

I'm using Windows 10 and the image is going to be on both Xeon and i5 based computers.

Thank you!

A:What Component Of The System Is Responsible.........

Since this sounds very much like a school type question. You also ask for links to support the answer so you can add them as resource when you answer this question.

I'll answer it this way. There are multiple factors that control the speed of file transfer. Processor speed is not the major factor. But I'll say this, one of the major factors that affects file transfer speed on a HDD is the quantity of HDD cache.

The rest you'll have to google. And you'll find a lot of information and some links you can honestly say you found on your own.

Hi all,

i have some trouble on my machine with Windows 8.1 (non pro version) - let's call it "server". I just bought new antivirus program with firewall (BitDefender Total Security 2017). On "server" side i have few shares with WebDAV protocol
(on SSL). With firewall off i can easy connect via SSL and map network drives via WebDAV protocol on clients machines. Problem occurs when i turn on firewall from BitDefender. Then i can't connect. So i need to create rule that will pass WebDAV traffic. And
here is a problem - BitDefender software can create rules only for specific *.exe file. I talked with BitdDefender staff about this problem for few weeks for now, but they solve (for now, only 1!) doesn't work and they told me that in that AV i can't open
port for non *.exe file... 

So this is my question - which file (specific exe, application) in Windows 8.1 x64 non pro are responsible for webdav communication on SSL, and where i can find it (path)?  I need to add firewall this exe file with 443 port to work ... I will be very
grateful for any answers ... :)

Firefox has been having sudden frequent crashes. Internet Explorer shuts down and gives me the message "runtime error." These crashes most often happen on the three main websites we use most frequently (Yahoo, Facebook, and a weather website). There is no warning when the crashes happen.

I've tried all the Firefox crash troubleshooting suggestions, with no satisfactory results. I regularly run scans with Malwarebytes, SUPERAntiSpyware Free, and AVG Free. AVG does pick up something called STDRT.EXE whenever I run a Super Mario game that we downloaded. AVG gives me the option of sending to virus vault, or "allowing". I've done both. I'm fairly sure that STDRT.EXE is not the culprit, since we've been playing Mario for a couple months, and the crashes have just happened in the last couple days. I'm no expert of course, which is why I'm here for help. Since the crashes started happening, I have dumped the Mario game onto a cd and uninstalled it from the computer.

I've also tried to do a system restore to a few dates previous to when this problem started, but it says "unable to restore" or something of that nature.....

Thanks for any help you can give.

A:Is STDRT.EXE responsible for recent crashes?

Windows are also very slow in opening.

When Firefox crashes, up comes Mozilla crash reporter which gives me the option of restarting Firefox or quitting. If I choose to restart then restore session, it brings me to the page that just crashed when I clicked on a link. If I click on the link it will crash again.

On the other hand, sometimes we can browse for quite some time before a crash happens. Very confusing

Well, this is the first time that I have had to post here despite the numerous virus and malware infections I have had to deal with. For the first time the combination of CA AntiVirus and MalwareBytes has failed to clear a problem. CA Antivirus reports an infection of Vundo.CEH in a file "C:\Windows\system32\cyzystno.dll", and I cannot get this file deleted. CA-AV cannot quarintine the file, MWB cannot deal with it, Killbox cannot touch it (Rename function over-ridden by a system process), etc. There are no other viruses detected by the antivirus scan. I come waving my white flag and posting my log file. I consider myself an expert PC user, programmer and system builder, but I confess I am beat. I'm planning on having a backup boot partition from now on to better facilitate the deletion of such files in the future. <sigh>...I remember when Vundo was easy.

So here is a weird problem, that I probably caused myself. While I had a bluescreen problem I googled several things and tried possible solutions, that was a month ago, so I don't know exactly what I did, and I just started using this computer again.

I think I disabled sideshow or sideshow gadgets. Now, I can't install my Logitech G15 Keyboard anymore (Blue backlight version). It says installed but the program is not on the harddrive and the functionality of the keyboards LCD and media keys is not given. I can use the volume wheel but not play/pause, skip, stop etc. The display also shows no information, just the logitech logo like it does when its not installed. I think I uninstalled the driver/gamepanel software when it gave an error about sideshow. I already tried reenabling it, but that does nothing.

Windows also says a USB driver is not installed, like for the port it seems. Other USB things work fine.

The weird thing is that it doesn't even install the program, it is not in the folder on the HDD, and the install wizard completes in like one second.
Already tried downloading different versions of it, but no luck.

Using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

So how do I get it working again? What could be the thing causing this? Thankful for everyone trying to help

A:Sideshow gadgets responsible for not installing G15 software?

Because your running the keyboard through a USB port it's power consumption is controlled by the CPU. When you plug in the keyboard to the computer it should send a report to the CPU telling it how much power it consumes (max). The controller chip then decides how much of the "pool" of power gets distributed to which device and how much (per cycle).
Rant Simply put in another way - lets say your mother\father sent you out to get a bucket of water every day from the water hole. This hole every day fills up to exactly six litres, you ask the water controller this is my bucket it holds exactly five litres of water may I have this much water please? It would reply yes, but the water controller knows it has others wanting to share the remaining litre so your request gets queued, you still get your five litres per day just not all in one refill.
So what be happening is that there are too many devices trying to consume too much of a single resource. Depending what else you may be using your USB ports for maybe try this drivercleanup thread#post875300 by @LookinAround

I just got a new laptop with Wireless-n. At first, I was able to connect to both home and library wifi. Ever since I used Blackviper to disable unnecessary services, I can now only connect at home and not the library.... why is this so? Additional details: In the library the laptop sees the connection, and it actually looks like it might be connected, but nothing shows up on my browswers. When I look at the connection, i think it says something like "identifying..."

Here's another, sort of unrelated question: When I start up my vista laptop... my desktop comes up like normal... and then after about 30 seconds, the whole screen blinks once and the cursor appears at the center of the screen... does this have to do with my wifi too (because I can't connect to the internet withing those 30 seconds)?

Any help/suggestions are much appreciated. THANKS

I've had my computer for about a year and a half now and I still can't seem to solve why I keep having BSODs. I sent my computer back to the maker, Cyberpower, and they took a look at it, did some stuff (I don't know what), and sent it back to me. I thought it was fixed but then the BSODs came back and I just don't know what to do now. I've used a program called, Blue Screen View, to look and log the BSODs. I have put the BSODs in a .txt file with this forum. Please I'm hoping that this is not Win7's fault. Any help is appreciated.

I'm trying to install windows 7 to a computer which in particular has only USB 3.0 ports. Yes, I know Win7's end-of-life is imminent, and this hardware is not supported. At any rate, it seems people have got the hardware working, but I'm running into some
I originally tried using MSI's "Smart tool", which produced a bootable install usb which allowed me use of my mouse and keyboard. However, the installer immediately asked for a path to a DVD driver [which, online comments suggest, actually just
means a driver for the installation media, which would be USB].
The most common approach I've seen is to use dism (or a derivative tool) to add the USB drivers to a windows 7 installation image. In particular, it seems to involve adding the drivers to boot.wim and install.wim. Boot.wim was no problem, but somehow when
I mount install.wim, it is read-only, and I cannot seem to make it writeable. Some comments have suggested that this could be due to antivirus software, but I tried uninstalling it all, and I still can't change it. Is there a way to modify
the install image so that I can get the required drivers into my system? Thanks in advance!

This is my first time on your forums. I have tried everything, but my DIY has reached its wit's end. I am running a Windows XP (using Mozilla Firefox as my browers) system with a wireless DSL connection. I have been plagued by issues and I am left unable connect to the internet while still had an IP address . . . When I logged into Windows, I got a dialog box warning that mmwnd.exe was unable to load. I searched online for solutions and was lead to the spyware removal software PREVX 1.

I installed this and it found several infections, which it was able to isolate and remove. However, I was still unable to connect. Occasionally PREVX would trip on a piece of malware it called TOTOUR.EXE, upon finding this and isolating it (although it never showed in up as isolated) I was able to connect to the internet. However, when PREVX was unable to locate it on a restart I still had no connection.

So I again searched online, and saw that i should remove TOTOUR.EXE with killbox. This didn't work, apparently.

Further searching lead me to another virus checker called Superantispyware Pro. I installed this and ran it. It found, around 200 of pieces of malware/tracking cookies on my machine that it removed without incident. (To be extra sure, I ran it in safe mode too. It found a couple of hundred more(!). I scanned another time, and I actually think that it's finding the same pieces of malware but unable to remove them.

So this is where I am at. I have no internet... Read more

Hi, thorubos


Ty the following options:

First run SFC /Scannow

In the event there is a missing file it will be restored.
Enter your Control Panel and double-click on Network Connections

Double-Click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item
Select the radio dial that says Obtain DNS Servers Automatically
Press OK twice to get out of the properties screen
Restart the computer
Go to Start->Run->Type CMD and click Ok. The MSDOS Window will be displayed. At the command prompt, type the following and press Enter after each line:

ipconfig /flushdns (The space between g and / is needed)

Restart the computer and Test

If that does not resolve the issue follow these steps:

Reset the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

Go to Start->Run, type CMD and click Ok. The MSDOS window will be displayed. At the prompt type the following and press Enter after each line:

netsh int ip reset C:\Resetlog.txt
netsh winsock reset catalog

I have 3 programs that stopped working, they will not load up, and I believe that The latest Windows updates are responsible. These programs are Inworldz Beta Viewer, Imprudence Viewer, and Second Life Viewer. They have always worked fine for me until Wednesday when suddenly none of them would load up. The next day, Windows 7 didn't want to load up. I had to restart the computer a couple of times before it did.

I have tried system restore, but it fails every time. I tired sfc/scannow command, but it doesn't find anything. Avast antivirus doesn't find any threats, although it finds some "warnings" that it won't seem to do anything about. I can upload an image of those warnings if it would help. Malewarebits doesn't find anything.

The only thing that has changed on my computer that I'm aware of since Wednesday, when Inworldz was working, was Windows installed some updates. So I'm guessing that caused the problems.

I have been advised elsewhere that I should do a Windows 7 Repair, but the process sounds confusing as heck. A complete clean reinstall of Windows 7 sounds easier. But, regardless, if the problem was caused by Windows updates, wouldn't the problem just return when Windows updates itself again after I've done all of that? That's a lot of work only to have the problem return.

I noticed that these 3 programs have log folders. They might keep crash files if someone can make sense of them. I might be able to upload the log files if th... Read more

A:3 programs stopped working, I think Windows updates are responsible

I've replied in your other thread as well. You might try System Restore in Safe Mode, and see if that will work (SR has never been reliable for me)

Safe Mode

You might hold off on the Repair Install, but it is pretty straight forward. If you can Clean Install, you can do a Repair Install

Repair Install

IF it was caused by Windows Updates, the System Restore may be your easiest fix, if you can get it to work.
