    Hello, again

    I successfully uninstalled the driver, but I could not re-install it.
    When I try to install the driver a fatal error message pops up.
    There are some .log files of this error.
    I hope you can help me with this issue.

    *Note1: So far, there have been no crashes.
    *Note2: Laptop became slow and response time and Usage of HDD are worrying.
    Spikes in usage percentages and response time for the smallest of tasks (browsing folders, viewing images, etc.)

    Did you reboot your system after uninstalling the driver.

    This is the driver that I have already uninstalled.
    It is not installed.
    I was trying to re-install it - after reboot - but it displayed the error message mentioned above.

    Is this driver important?
    What does it do anyways?

    If IRST is installed then this driver is important, but IRST isn't required.

    Intel® Rapid Storage Technology offers greater levels of performance, responsiveness, and expandability than ever before. Whether you are using one or multiple serial ATA (SATA) or PCIe drives, you can take advantage of enhanced performance and lower power consumption from the latest storage technologies.

    axe0, thank you for identifying the issue; you're a life saver!

    lifetec, thank you for your contribution.

    For now, I will not install IRST. I see that the system is stable.
