  • your answer isn't compatible with my question...i want to report this problem that i have with windows 7. moreover, installation of updates from windows updates has same problem.

    I believe I have the same problem. When updating ANY drivers, takes forever to install...when updating wifi or wired network card drivers, pc will actually become unresponsive for about 15 to 20 min.

    currently, as I type this, my W7, 64bit laptop has been installing my sprint 4g "mifi" or whatever the 4g version of the mifi is called...this consists of 3 devices, "Sierra Wireless Tethered Hotspot, Network Adapter (Sierra WIreless Network Adapter) and a Serial Port (NEMA for GPS). they have been installing for about 15 or 20 min now, after telling it to skip searching windows updates/msft for driver source.....

  • Same problem here.  This is my 4th install of Win7 on this machine.  I've been having a bunch of POWER_STATE blue screens and a USB_DRIVER blue screen, but I think disabling Intel Direct IO in the BIOS may have alleviated this problem.  The slow driver install was not an issue previously but is on this install.  I have a Dell Precision M4400 and Windows 7 64-bit Professional with a TPM and fingerprint-reader that seem to be giving me loads of problems.  This is somewhat ironic given that the configuration is basically the same as a Latitude E6500, which is a very popular business machine.

  • Same Problem for me. I am using 64-bit version of Window 7 Ultimate (Intel Q6600 (4 cores 2.4 G) CPU, 8G RAM, Asus P5B-V motherboard). I find that since the installation of W7, every time when I install or uninstall drivers and applications (include mother board drivers, updates from Windows Update, anti-virus software), it takes serveral minutes to load, the installation program usually displays 0% process finished and at that time, all other tasks are running very slow or even stop. After some time (several minutes), the loading ends and everything returns normal. Installation will continue at a normal speed, all other tasks also run normally. It seems that something is checking the installation files when it is load. This happened even before the installation of antivirus program.
    Any suggestion?

  • I've been stuck in an update during shutdown for over 12 hours. It says not to "Please do not power off or unplug your machine. Installing update 1 of 1! The last time it did this, it took two days for it to complete it's cycle.

    Any ideas would be appreciated!

    This is a DELL Inspiron 531 upgraded from VISTA (clean install) to Windows 7 professional - purchased thru Amazon.com

  • I'm not sure what my problem was but it's gone now. Don't know what exactly I did but I played around in the BIOS settings and I believe the USB Controller has something to do with it.
    So try to check your USB controller via the Windows hardware manager, changing BIOS settings and reinstalling your chipset drivers.
