Intel drivers installations don't complete

November 21, 2011 at 20:49:02
Specs: Windows XP Pro (SP3), Penryn T8100 @ 2.1 GHz/3GB
I've tried installing 3 different Intel drivers in the past couple weeks. Every one of them has stopped at 99% finished. the first one I let run, and it finally finished the last 1% in about 3 days (the first 99% took only a few minutes). I did not want to wait that long the second and third time around, so I just canceled, which of course crashed the program. For the second (Intel Chipset Driver 6 v8.?????? or something like that) and third (Wifi driver for intel cards) I used lenovo system update, which now shows neither of them in the installation history but also they a both gone from available updates, so I have no way of knowing if they are installed or not. What is causing this problem, how do I fix it, and do I need to do anything to undo the incomplete installations (I'm getting a few occasional error messages that I never got before since these installations, but not in every session of Windows)? What should I do?

I have installed many other software programs, drivers, and updates recently without a problem... but the 3 intel ones I had all seemed to have the same problem.

Strange it only affects Intel installations. Have you tried temporarily disabling your antivirus before running the Intel installations?

I have not, but I use Norton Internet Security 2012 on the very idea that if it is widely used it is less likely to have these problems.

As opposed to Kaspersky which gets better reviews (and I own) but I don't yet trust. In fact, it was Kaspersky's free online ma-config utility that someone recommended me to that told me to update my Intel chipset driver in the first place (the first one), so I did but after the trouble, I looked at the readme and it didn't seem to support my chipset (I think it was a newer version of intel's chipset driver that only supported newer chipsets). Since the registry install value showed "success" I didn't worry too much at first, but now I wonder if that's what has caused this problem.

Still wondering there a way to remedy my situation now? (checking to make sure drivers are installed appropriately, etc. see first post).
