    2 or 3 days ago a friend installed a windows update , and after it was done , he restarted the pc and his wireless driver was not working. We just reinstalled it , and it was working again. Probably windows update installed a driver that was not compatible with his system . Can you prevent windows update from updating drivers?

    :)

    Step 1

    Step 2
    install all drivers from the cd that came with the god damn motherboard *common sense*
    Step 3
    update windows
    Step 4
    install misc etc crap like flash java etc etc
    Step 5
    Install GPU drivers
    Step 6
    go back to using your pc without issue.
