Killer/Bigfoot K1 Card - messed up

Ok... background..

Was downloading GW2 patch, and it locked up my computer. I had to restart the computer by powering down and loading back, but when I did, i started getting new errors in my event log. Computer was booting more slowly but that is all i noticed

Event ID: 7000
Source: Service control Manager

Seems to to do with my Killer NIC, but i dont even run anything off it and always worked fine when hooked up

Event ID: 7001
Source: Service Control Manager
Locale ID: 1003

States: The HomeGroup Provider service depends on the Function Discovery Provider Host servicewhich failed to start cause of the following error:

I ran the troubleshooting tool on the homegroup and it cleared up the 7001 error, but was still getting the following now

Event ID: 7000
Source Service Control Manager
Killer Port Manager has failed to start...: The system cannot find the path specified

Also now getting

Event ID: 2
Source: Kernel-EventTracing
Session "Homegroup log" failed to start cause of the following error: 0xC0000035

I am guessing Event ID: 2 is due to Event ID:7000.

I cannot uninstall the driver from control panel, so i went into device manager, disabled it and pulled ethernet cord. I then uninstalled it from there which seemed to work. CCCleaner did not find any left over registry entries.

I then went to Bigfoot Network website and looked for latest driver set up for this card and installed it along with the software i do not like that they have. Rebooted computer, and still got the errors

Any ideas what to do next?

  1. finally just removed the card and set everything up to the onboard card. I am guessing that the card is dated and the drivers older causing conflicts

    Scroll to the bottom. There is a link for their cleaner utility. Chances are your drivers, registry or a file got corrupted by your forced reboot.
  3. yea apparantly that cleaner doesnt work on the older K1 cards.. (4 years old?).. i tried earlier. Bigfood even said to just not use the card.. go figure.
