    You said you have Windows 7 64bit, but the System Utility tool shows it as 32bit, please confirm.

    I would suggest running the System File Checker.



    • Windows 7 System File Checker
    • Click on Start and type cmd in the search box. Right click on cmd in the popup menu and select Run as Administrator.
    • Another box will open, at the Command Prompt, type sfc /scannow and press Enter. (Note the gap between the c and the /)
    • Let the check run to completion. DO NOT reboot the PC or close the cmd window.
    • Copy & Paste the following command at the Command Prompt and press Enter:

    findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt

    • This will place a file on your desktop called sfcdetails.txt which contains the results of the scan.
    • Zip up the file and attach it to your next post.

    Disable LogMeIn. When the mirror driver is active, Windows disables Desktop Window Manager. Probably the reason the list is empty.

    I notice that the Graphics Card Description is not showing your video driver but rather a LogMeIn Mirror Driver. You can remove the driver if you wish. Follow these steps.



    1. Click the Start orb
    2. In "Search programs and files", type cmd Right click cmd.exe and select Run as Administrator
    3. In the Command Prompt window, type cd %programfiles(x86)%\logmein\x86 and press Enter.
    4. Type logmein uninstallmirrordrv and press Enter.
    5. Restart the system.

    Is LogMeIn running on the system? Down at the bottom right, right click LogMeIn and select Switch Off LogMeIn Restart the system and check if the list is still empty. also is LogMeIn Mirror Driver still there in the graphics card info.
