I've built my own computer and I am on the phase of installing an OS, and I chose Windows 7 64 Bit.

I have been following this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxaVBsXEiok

which honestly really doesn't even help for first time builders, but whatever.

anyway, in the video he says to update the chipset driver first, and I thought the driver I picked was the chipset, but I'm not sure anymore. I downloaded the drivers on my laptop to my USB flashdrive to install on my new desktop.

when I installed one of the drivers, not only do all of my desktop icons no longer appear, I can not see any of the software. No bar on the bottom. It's just a blank screen with the desktop wallpaper. Wtf happened? I can right click and somehow get into my computer's files, and it won't even let me uninstall the driver I just installed. Wtf is going on?

From what I'm reading the driver I installed is:

Intel Management Engine ver:7.0.4.1197

please note this is my first time building I thought this was the driver I had to first install apparently not.

i didn't watch the video but motherboard drivers off the disc would be my assumption as to what was suggested. Since it's a new build why not try and reinstall the opsys?

anyways, never had this happen or heard of it so hope the topic keeps going and a result is found.

The Intel Management Engine Interface is a part of the VPro technology of intel.
This IMEI technology allows to manage your pc remotely.
And is more designed for enterprise then for home users.

is there anyway for me to get rid of it or should I re-install OS? I tried un-installing what I installed through control panel and it simply will not allow me to do it.
