    "Searching online for software ..."


    After right clicking a device in "Device Manager" I selected "update driver software" and then elected to have Windows search on line for an update.
    It's been searching for a very very long time now with no result.
    Is this, like the "Troubleshooter" a Windows device that simply doesn't work or is there something I can do to make it work?
    Any advice gratefully received.

    :)

    Hello and welcome to the Ten Forums.

    Are you able to provide any information on the device? It may be easier to manually search for a driver, download and install it that way.

    Thanks for the response.
    It's a television dongle called a WinFast DTV dongle Gold.
    I've looked manually for a driver and the best I've been able to do is a driver provided by the manufacturer of the device (Leadtech) and released in June 2010.
    With this driver installed if I right click the device in Device Manager and select the Properties tag it tells me that the device is working properly but when I install the software to run the device and then try to open the device it won't run.
