Hello Mike,

Leave the CCTray. That is your Internet Security suite. Need that. The Intellitype is the drivers for your keyboard. So if you use the media buttons on there leave that as well or they wont work. Also leave teh ctfmon as that is a Windows process and could cause you issues.

Cheers,
Mak

I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I do not have the option to select any of these. They are in the "DriverPacks" folder which I have saved to my desktop. After I extracted the driver packs using 7z, it put a huge amount of files into folder C:\DriverPacks\D. With "D" being the name of a subfolder. Then I have the unzipped 7z driver packs inside the "DriverPacks" folder.

Any help?

A bit of advice shortstop. Dont quote your post to take the topic back to the top of the forum after 2 hours. It is ill advised to bump after such a short period of time. Someone will be with you when they can.
