Just as I thought.

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\igfxcui]
(you lose Right click anywhere on desktop > intel graphic properties)
To restore, use your HKLM_SOFTWARE_Classes_Directory_Background_shellex.reg from above.

See here for latest driver. What is the exact name of the devices (they appear as two) in Device Manager?

The other one (key.reg) seems OK, only if you could verify what DEB039CC-B704-4F53-B43E-9DD4432FA2E9 is (it might be Terminal Services mirror display driver (another one besides TSDDD); I have nLited away mine :D) For example, 23A77BF7-ED96-40EC-AF06-9B1F4867732A is well known VgaSave driver for safe mode and/or booting. When I said search, I meant search in your registry (or go directly to the key it points to - HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video\{DEB039CC- B704-4F53-B43E-9DD4432FA2E9}\0000). Most probably, this has nothing to do with your issue, but it wouldn't hurt to check if it's a leftover.

This link http://forum.noteboo...tml#post3463520 probably verifies that it is related to graphics (other hits on google warn of a possible virus :whistle:)

Anyway, the video card is Mobile Intel 915GM/GMS, 910 GML Express Chipset Family and it's no use looking for a newer driver; I've done it more than once (even with trial versions of device driver finders), and the earliest version on the link you suggested is 940GML. A daRn shame.

These entries are in the registry, found in ControlSet, ControlSet001 and ControlSet002 (no need to export them all)

OK, everything is well with RDPCDD, it's a built-in Windows component.

And unfortunately you're right about the driver...

I'm out of ideas (actually, I'm not, but I think they might have lesser chances of helping you with this issue). If you're not tired of this and want to proceed, let me know. :) (I'm not).

Well, this spoiled brat IS feeling kinda spiteful and wants to see the end of this unpleasant issue for the sake of posterity, but has also begun preparations for a new nLited install (this time through USB), which is maybe even overdue.

It's just that I can't shake the felling that one of the possible reasons could also be KB2286198.exe...
