    Driver Update


    Somehow I have this program "Driver Update" on my computer & it interferes with every time IK want do with files.
    I have tried every method to delete it & am blocked!
    ANY program that does that is BAD & has other intentions other than helping!

    Does anyone know how to get rid of it!

    Drver Update


    Why would I use another FREE program which could be just like the one I have now!

    I WILL NOT DOWNLOAD ANYTHING THAT IS NOT FROM A WELL KNOWN VENDOR!

    I might be dumb, but I am not stupid!

    Why does the FORUM allow these kind of ADDS?

    If you won't take the advice of members when they suggest a utility that might solve the issue, then I don't know what to tell you.

    Emmisoft and Malwarebytes are well respected and trusted vendors.

    Members go out of their way to remind you to check for cross marketing in the installers of free programs
    Always read the install screens and remove the checkmark from boxes offering extra software.

    The forum has to pay for servers and bandwidth. The help members provide is free.
    Would you prefer to be charged directly?

    Driver Update is a bit ambiguous. Since I would ask you to download a utility that would tell me more about the appicaitons on your system or advise you to download and run a different scanner - I'm at your 'mercy' for information.

    Tell me everything you know or can find out about software installed and running on your system.

    Fill in your system specs so I know what hardware you have - there is a Driver Update for Intel components.

    But I have to tell you, I won't be able to help unless you help too. 20 questions is the worst way to troubleshoot an issue.

    You decide if you trust members or if you don't trust members. You decided if you install the extra software that comes with free application or if you're attentive enough to unselect those things.

    You'll have to figure out that you came here for help and accept the help being offered - or not to accept the help.

    So, just What do you have now ? Obviously you have some unwanted software you want to get rid of. Good wish is not going to do it, you need something to truly uninstall it since you were silly enough to install it.
    Programs we suggested to you are not from some unknown vendor even if YOU don't know them and certainly are not ADDs, nobody here sells them and nobody is pushing them on you.
    So go and consult an oracle or pay tribute to gods of software, maybe that would help. Good luck.

    I'm sorry, it just irks me when someone asks for help then yells at the people trying to help them

    Le't try this another way.

    Launch System Configuration (msconfig)

    Press the Services tab
    Click image for larger version Hide all Microsoft Services
    Press the [Disable All] button

    then press the Startup tab
    Press the [Disable All] button

    Press [OK]

    Restart your machine.

    HELP!


    Sorry!

    I am 86 & a little grumpy at times!

    I have been in computers before there were computers!
    I try my best to have the very latest technology in the Internet of Things!
    I have a Windows Phone, which is great for tracking bus info!
    My Broadband is 20 up & 200 down. My Broadband box contains the modem & TV system.
    All my TVs & computers are connect by cat6 cable.
    One of my desktops runs Win10 Beta!
    I have my own 4TB WD Cloud.
    I just finished building an ASUS desktop with a 480GB SSD.

    My first home computer was a Radio Shack TRS-80. Had 2 5-1/4 floppies & ran MS DOS & a cassette recorder for storage!

    I am no novice & DO make mistakes!

    Mistakes


    Tully AGAIN:

    I just logged onto my Win10 Desktop & received a notice that my JAVA script needed updating.

    OK, JAVA script is an important part of everyday computer usage.

    I pressed update & a screen came up & had several choices to make;

    Do you want to keep Internet explorer as you Internet browser?
    Do you want to keep Bing as your internet search engine?

    I clicked yes to both!

    Downloaded the java script update, restarted my computer and

    LOW & BEHOLD a NEW Search engine was new HOME PAGE!!!

    Notice it never ask me about my Home Page!

    WAS THIS A SILLY MISTAKE!

    Why was this positive negative even on the download site!
