do i need to down load a search agent i had enough bother with that windows anti virus 2008 can i not just have the 97 driver by its self

You can download the driver without a scan, simply click on "Download ... Driver" in the box.

However, the scan will simply look at your PC to ensure you are doing the right thing by using that driver and need no other. It is safe so you can use it without worry.

I don`t know which browser you are using, but a good tool to help avoid bad sites is McAfee SiteAdvisor click here. It`s free and adds markers to the sites you browse to show safe, suspect and dangerous.

thanks for your good advice johndrew the computer that has no sound does not have the internet its amazing that a lot of people think running a computer has to have the internet i have downloaded the driver to my memory stick and will put that in tonight

Hi johnandrew downloaded drivers but when i installed them it was a media rack 211 have tried unsuccesly to down load from there with no joy is it possible to cancell the on board sound card and put a new sound card in place of it just in case it is faulted

You can always replace a sound card but it may be easier to install your internet details onto the PC and connect it to check the driver is correct.
