Did You Recently Install an Incompatible Device Driver?

As you’ll see in Chapter 17, Windows Vista allows you to install drivers that aren’t Windows Vista–certified, but it also warns you that this is a bad idea. Incompatible drivers are one of the most common sources of system instability, so whenever possible, you should uninstall the driver and install one designed for Windows Vista. If you can’t uninstall the driver, Windows Vista automatically set a system restore point before it installed the driver, so you should use that to restore the system to its previous state. (See “Recovering Using System Restore,” later in this chapter.)
