I have an updated network adapter driver for my system. In device manager I uninstalled my old driver and installed the new driver. But when I boot/start up my system each day it reverts back to my old network driver.
I updated to the new driver because the old device driver kept dropping my internet connection and I found an update on the Intel site that was suppose to fix that issue. Here's what I did. I went to device manager and used Windows to check for the latest driver, but it thinks that the old driver is the latest one. I downloaded the new driver. I uninstalled the old driver via device manager, and installed the new driver. I also went to the system32 folder and delete the old driver (.sys file) from that folder. While I'm running with the new driver my internet connection is fine. But when I reboot or boot each day, the old driver is used and I don't have an internet connection. I then go back to device manager, uninstall the old driver again, and scan for new hardware and Windows finds the new driver now and installs it again. But I have to do this at each boot.
I am using Windows 8 64-bit version. It keeps installing the old driver from somewhere.
Thanks for any help.
