Why Acer Updater can't find the updated drivers listed on the Acer website?

I've been using one for laptop Acer Aspire 5742 G for more than 1.5 years and although I tried to find any updated drivers for the drivers of my laptop, the Acer Updater installed never find one, although some new drivers Acer India are listed on the site. Also, I ran the detection tool to assist to ensure that components are installed on my laptop and wanted to download and manually install the updated drivers. It is especially for pilots who are 'old' compared to the nVidia Web site, which recently released the version 306.97 mentions the chip nVidia GT 420 M nVidia graphics installed on my laptop.

Is is safe to update the OEM as nVidia drivers, and whether I should download & install "newer" drivers Acer India site for other components such as LAN, Bluetooth or Wireless LAN, etc.. Would appreciate advice from knowledgeable people. Thank you.


After long deliberation, I uninstalled all the software components associated with nVidia control panel Windows and installed one that is available on the site Acer India (Ver 285.90). It seems to have a more clear than the 'last' rendering of fonts (Ver 306.97) available drivers on the nVidia India site which is supposed to be compatible for this graphic chip (GeForce GT 420 M). So it seems better to stick to the certified and provided drivers with drivers update OEM, even if qualified supplier of "last". "."

    Hey Roy, it's hard to say.

    For visitors who do not all pages of the site being cached, they should get only what is currently available. You can emulate this by opening a new private window (assuming that you are not currently using a private window) and by visiting your site in this window.

    For visitors come back, what is supposed to happen is that if your site has sent a "last modified" as well as the page date, Firefox should ask the server if there is an update before displaying the cached version. It is very difficult to test, of course, because it is difficult to simulate in time...

    This article includes a link to the download page for the latest version and the download page is here - Migration of Windows Wizard v1.0.5.7

  • I can't find the fix_svchost.bat file update. The svchost.exe process is spiking the CPU at 100% after the computer crashes.

    Original title: I can't find the fix_svchost.bat file update.

    I'm in you process of having my computer running faster. The svchost.exe process takes 100% of cpu memory and computer dthe freezes. A friend of mine told me a method to solve the problem, but I can't find the fix_svchost.bat update. I went to microsoft update center and don't find any results at all, and I don't know another place to look for. I think that the update does not even exist.

    I could send you a fix_svchost.bat file, but I don't think it's the starting point.

    What you need to do is run a few respectable scans for malware first, and then see if any of you are your svchost.exe process is still badly behave.

    Behind each of the svchost.exe process that see you in the Manager of tasks can be one or more process of XP you have to be running, but malware is KNOWN to imitate or hide behind a svchost.exe process, so you won't be able to see in Manager tasks.  You have to outsmart it.

    First yo should make a reasonable effort to eliminate malware, and then start troubleshooting - not the other way around.

    Provide information on your system, the better you can:

    What is your system brand and model?

    What is your Version of XP and the Service Pack?

    Describe your current antivirus and software anti malware situation: McAfee, Symantec, Norton, Spybot, AVG, Avira!, MSE, Panda, Trend Micro, CA, Defender, ZoneAlarm, PC Tools, Comodo, etc..

    No matter what you use for malware protection, follow these steps:

    Download, install, update and do a full scan with these free malware detection programs at:
    Malwarebytes (MMFA): http://malwarebytes.org/
    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS): http://www.superantispyware.com/

    These comprehensive analyses can take some time, but you really need to run.  SAS will probably be just a bunch of Internet tracking cookies, but you can remove them.  Once you have done at least a full analysis, you can do quick scans in the future to save time and save the analyses complete for when you have more time or are really suspicious of an infection of the system.

    They can be uninstalled later if you wish.

    In 1985, there were 11 known computer viruses.  Today, there are over 70,000 and new threats are detected every day.  Always update your virus definitions before running a scan.
