On several occasions recently, I have had some bother when updating drivers ( sound card, graphics, usb drivers etc ..). I always get something like " the file xxxxx.sys or xxxx.dll on (unknown) is needed. Please indicate location..." I then have to stop and browse and seatrch and virtually every time, the file is already in \System32\Drivers or similar. I have yet to come across a file that is not already on the hard disc. Does anyone know why the driver application installation cannot find the file for itself ? Very frustrating !

that another prog has loaded a later version of the file for itself in its own folder and the os remembers that one and therefore cannot find the one for the other progs.
