    Maybe there's a better way. AutoRuns

    shows auto start programs, services etc.. it has a Drivers Tab that should make it a bit easier.

    But can I disable windows built-in drivers without messing up the whole os ?

    The idea is not to disable the drivers. The idea is to delete redundant loads. The system gets an error because you are trying to load an already loaded driver. I would search the registry for load locations that do not match those listed in AutoRuns.

    Back up your registry as searching through RegEdit can be tedious. Or you can gamble and try some other registry cleaner programs. I would read a lot of user reviews before trying any other than the CCleaner one. Again, backup is what saves the bacon.


    I haven't tried regisry optimizers since it is risky. But in your case it may not be much rikier than slogging through regEdit by hand provided you have backups. Just be careful. You don't want to get it to the point it won't boot. I'd make the Macrium Rescue discs and make sure they boot before proceding. They might pull you out of a jam.
