I down graded to windows 7 and the only device I am having an issue with is a universal serial bus (usb) controller.

 

I have installed all the drivers on the site.

 

Any ideas?

The downloads are execitable files that install the drivers to you C drive - you can click on the device in device manage and then update the drive manually.

 

I alos found that installing the chip drivers first help helped with the rest.
