I tryingto update all the drivers but when I fine a new one it says that I don't have the program on my system. and when I try to watch a movie it shut's down. I really need some help! can someone help me.......

    I can see that this is a wast of time.

    Graf,

    It is a waste of time, for us and you, if you don't provide a detailed description of your problem. Merely listing out events isn't helpful. If you are receiving error notifications, you need to tell us what they are. We aren't telepathic, so we need you to be our eyes and ears.

    You also don't tell us whether you have a laptop or desktop, what make and model it is, XP or Vista, 32bit or 64bit, what video and audio cards you have, etc, etc.

    The more info you give us, the easier it'll be to help.

    Try posting again with the above info.

    Good start. Now give us details of the error warnings you are seeing. They are the clue to solving your problem.

    To eliminate malware/viral infections, go here and download SuperAntiSpyware, run it and remove anything it finds. Also schedule a full antivirus scan.

    Report back when you've done all that, and if necessary we'll take it on to the next stage.

    Good luck.

    {How am I going to know what to tell you if you don't ask?}

    No No Graf -the way it works is you have a problem you want help with- then you ask for help from the volunteers on this site
    You have been a member of this volunteer group of people for about three years and you have read none of the Stickys or even put your computer details on the site- but you then get a problem and everyone has to leap to your assistance, even if they dont know what your problem is with your PC
    I know that your "Help me post" is aggressive; it need not be -the help will not be charged to you -everybody is here to help YOU if they can,no one has to answer you at all; if they feel so inclined. I may be misunderstanding the tone of your message if so I apologise.
    To point out I am just a member of this site like you.
