I too have this problem with windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. Contacted Intel support and they told me this problem occurs if you have a Pioneer Sata DVD/CDROM and is bieng investigated. I was advised to revert back to version 9.6 untill intel release there next driver with a fix for this problem. I dont know if you have one of these DVD/CDROM drives but i just thought it might help.
