Intel(R) 82579V Freezing windows 7 @ shutdown


Hi everyone,

since, a week or so my Ethernet card driver got updated and suddenly my card name changed to Intel(R) 82579V (I believe it used to be Ethernet.. Family.. something..) ever since then my windows freezes upon reaching the shutdown screen and I have no other choice then to pull the plug to shut it down.

I've tried removing the driver and re-installing it from the cd that got delivered with the pc itself, however the software tells me that 'A newer version of Intel(R) PROSet for Windows is installed', thus making it impossible for me to revert back to the old driver.

Any help would be appreciated,
