As we understand, you are having issues updating the driver for your Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260. In this case, we advise to remove the Software from Windows* Control Panel - Programs and Features, then try to uninstall Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software.
If this is not possible, there may be a problem with the driver, or the registry. In this case, you can try using the Microsoft* Install/Uninstall Troubleshooter, another user was able to resolve a similar issue using this Microsoft* tool in the following thread:
If the issue persists, please let us know the following information:
- Was this the adapter that came built from factory with your PC?
- Have there been any OS or system changes/updates that may be related to this?
- Computer model and operating system version.
- Which driver version are you trying to install, and where did you download it from?
I Can´t try to apply your recomendation yet.
I have some doubts. My computer is a Lenovo Thinkpad Carbon Touch x1, it was originaly with windows 8.1, I have updated it to Windows 10.
The driver I tryed to install was provided by Lenovo, I have tryed with drives from Intel, and the result is the same.
Do you think, your recomendations still works in this scenario?
The Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 is fully compatible with Windows® 10. We always recommend to use the drivers and software provided by the Computer Manufacturer Support; so, if Lenovo has a Windows® 10 driver, that would be the best option to download. However, if you have any issues, you can also try the generic version of Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers for Windows® 10 [19.20.3] from Intel Download Center.
The process to remove programs is practically identical in the different Windows* versions, and even the Microsoft* troubleshooter tool applies to Windows 10 as well, so the recommendations are valid for your system.
