    82579 Gigabit Network Connection lost after Win7 Update

    psiVie

      After the last 2 Windows Updates , windows kicks out my Ethernet Controller from Device Manager

       

      Maybe its KB 890830, but I don't know for sure.

      After restore the System from last Recovery Point the network works as supposed.

      Means I have a network device again and an internet connection.

       

      Device Manager w/o Win Update:

      The Driver Version is Intel ProSet Version 15.6.25.0

      It's a bit old, I know. I didn't updated it since I bought the system.

       

      But, I tried to Update the Windows driver for 82579v and d/l PROWinx64Legacy.

      But update cancelled. Tells me i have to deinstall the intel driver.

      I deinstalled the driver in the device Manager and still this message appears

       

      I installed "Intel Driver and Support Assistant" too, but it say no updates available.

       

      Any ideas?

      How to tell windows to not delete Device drivers?

      How do I update Device Driver w/o crashing system completely?

      Any other ideas?

       

      Thanks in advance
