Have just upgraded from Vista Home Premium 32 bit to Win 7 Home Premium 32 bit which appeared to go well but i now have 2 annoying driver problems.

  1. Whenever i now boot my computer a message pops up Saying Tages Protection Driver is incompatible and has been disabled. If i check for solutions it appears to be something connected with an application called Sygate Firewall which in turn seems to be part of Norton Security. Strangely it is not something i have ever installed though? Nevertheless as well as not knowing where it came from i do not know how to get rid of it either?! Any ideas??

  2. My IDT High Definition Audio CODEC driver does not seem to work so i have no sound?

I will post back if i find a solution but if anyone has any ideas it would be most helpful.

You should not post your updates as answers, it confuses people and generally is not good practice. You can update your question with the new input. – Decio Lira Dec 28 '09 at 18:15

That driver is installed by several games at part of an anti-piracy solution. Simply update the driver by going here.

If you do not play the game it is needed for there is no need to try and fix the driver, simply uninstall it. Go to Control Panel -> System and Security -> Device Manager and uninstall the Tages Protection Driver.
