whats good for the update again?

faster USB connections, especially during reboot.

In the past, after a reboot, my wireless mouse wouldn't work immediately when Windows loads it would take like 3 seconds then it would start moving after the USB connection is made, but now, it does it immediately.

remember to uninstall the old driver first then reboot then install this one then reboot

as i expected its not for windows 8.
microsoft have taken over the usb 3.0 drivers. intel will not release any usb 3.0 drivers for windows 8.

Well installing this driver has put me back to having connection problems again? I have had to uninstall 3 times now and reinstall. How I got back to working again with this driver
1 uninstall using control panel
2 reboot twice
3 install new driver
4 reboot twice
I do not have the Charger Plus driver installed, I don't need it for anything. I was working on the previous driver with out it.. I have my 32 Gb Patriot usb 3.0 thumb drive connected for an hour or so with out it disconnection
I was able to Benchmark it HD Tune I am getting 87 mbs second average, slightly lower than on the last driver set. I also managed to get my External drive to connect and Bench mark it is doing about the same 90 mbs so I am working USB 3.0. Now I just leave everything connected for a day or so and see if they stay connected

Ok it been about 36 hours both my USB thumb drive and external drive have staid connected.
I believe the mistake I made was uninstalling the driver from device manager originally. I guess it that it needs to be uninstalled from add remove programs
