With time, your computer will gather an increasing number of unused drivers that not only take space on your hard disk, having been still installed, they might cause problems if they are somehow enabled. In some cases they can also cause hardware conflicts. And to make things worse, when you do want to use the same device after a long period of inactivity, even if you re-install an updated version of the driver, Windows might still use the older version of it.One of the most annoying issues with Windows is when your hardware manufacturer fails to provide a proper driver for the operating system. (LG united mobile 1.1, 2.1, 2.2, 3.4, 3.5......)
Your Windows7 or Vista based computer may have installed those LG
-drivers from the Smartflash-tool and messed up. *I have been uninstalling hundreds of old drivers manually* . That's because these hidden-files can only be recognized by reading the properties before you can safely remove them. This is how I removed LG's old drivers
(no free software ads!)
Doing this will speed up any PC but I've also removed the (hidden) Vista stuff from before my Windows7 upgrade which made it feel like a new PC
About YOUR BASEBAND: It's only LGE-software
that shows up 60 times where other frequently used USB-devices had two entries but LGE
is all over the place - like in the picture.
I couldn't flash my O2x-baseband(725) just like two months ago when it was
perfect. But since I flashed the 725bb again with a "clean" PC (after I removed all LGE-drivers/software first
) it's better than before.........
Other advantages are e.g: DroidExplorer now working on all machines/plugins, The PCsuite
update app checking take a few seconds to load/check (used to be 3 to 4 minutes)
