    I was looking around in system properties and under system protection, device updates the top box was checked, I changed it to what it is now and want to make sure this is ok.

    It's far better than just "OK" when you have the system running satisfactorily. :) It's the only way to avoid the nasty surprises when Windows "updates" to incorrect drivers.

    Thank you Terry, that's what I thought, I'm glad I stumbled upon that setting.

    You're welcome. :) Most of us find that setting only after experiencing a driver mishap. :(
