I have had exact same problem...radeon driver and audigy x-gamer driver. I have tried several different ways to update the drivers with no avail. I would like a solution for this as well.

Some manufacturers make their own "driver removal" utilities. CANON has one and so does HAUPPAUGE. Maybe what you are looking for is such a utility which removes all traces of the driver files from the registry. You may want to try the support pages of the companies ypu are referring to or their ftp site. Hope this helps a little.

Have you tried disabling the microsoft certified drivers check and then installing the drivers?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
