Intel ® Driver Update Utility 2.6 and that Setup & MS Security Essentials Updates NOT WORKING
1.  When I try to run an Update on my MS Security Essentials, I get a message that reads “Virus and spyware definitions couldn’t be updated.” Beneath that heading it reads “This app couldn’t check for virus and spyware definition updates. Check your Internet or network connection and try again.
Click Help for more information about this problem.
2. I went to run an Intel ® Driver Update Utility 2.6 and that Setup, too, Failed. The error message I got on that was “One or more issues caused the setup to fail. Please fix the issues and then retry setup. For more information see the log file. 0x80070642 User canceled installation.”

The MS Word version on my Sony VAIO, Windows 7 is Word Starter 2010

From SONY and Microsoft, I copy the 2 devices onto a flash drive. When I go to upload them onto my Sony VAIO I am able to run , then download them onto Vaio Windows 7. But when I go to run them or open them, I get a message that

Network Adapters are:
  1. Intel ® WiFi Link 1000 BGN
  2. Marvell Yukon 88E8059 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller.
This is the SONY network device shows up in my thumb drive as MRDETH-00225727-0042, while the Intel ® WiFi Link shows up as PSMT64 Intel R WiFi Link, a name which I gave to it.

Was told that the Marvel driver "won't do anything because it's related to the ethernet port [and] not the Wi-Fi module."

When working with How-to-Geek and you want to upload anything, you must use the following formats: jpg, jpeg, png, gif.  It does not accept odt. Bill Myers, on June 10, 2016, was extremely helpful.  He explained that in Libre Office that with the desired document opened already I need to choose FILE, then EXPORT, and make sure that the .jpg file type is selected.  Since .jpg was not an option and .jpeg was, I chose .jpeg, which seemed to work. Another member suggested using this site, Cool Utilities

My most recent discussion at How-to-Geek.  August, 2016.

This is driving me crazy.  
I found Hardware Ids in the Details tab after right clicking on the Marvell Yukon 88E8059 device.  An acronym popped up, PCI.  It means Peripheral Component Interconnect.  
It's short for Peripheral Component Interconnect, a local bus standard developed by Intel Corporation.  Most modern PCs include a PCI bus in addition to a more general ISA expansion bus.  PCI is also used on some versions of the Macintosh computer.  

All of this is a bit much for the reward. ISA stands for 
Industry Standard Architecture (ISA) is a retronym term for the 16-bit internal bus of IBM PC/AT and simliar computers based on the Intel 80286 and its immediate successors during the 1980s.

So there's that. 

The drivers on my Sony VAIO are:
1)  PCI/VEN_11AB&DEV_4381&SUBSYS_9071104D&REV_11
2)  PCI/VEN_11AB&DEV_4381&SUBSYS_9071104D
3)  PCI/VEN_11AB&DEV_4381&CC_020000
4)  PCI/VEN_11AB&DEV_4381&CC_0200

I hate SONY support.  Their website is atrocious!  But I need them as at least one source.  


Mon-Fri: 8-Midnight
Sat & Sun: 9-8pm.

1.  Intel(R) My WiFi Technology Adapter not found.  
2.  Wireless Switch OFF.  Please locate the wireless switch on your notebook and turn the switch "ON" to continue.  The site says go to VAIO. Then their site says go to the esupport at SONY.  I swear these idiots make things up as they go.  

Driver #1 at SONY's esupport. Intel WiFi Link 1000 BGN Wireless Network Adapter driver.

Sony VAIO, Windows 7

Okay, having the same problem with the wi-fi device on my VAIO as I had on my Dell.  Remember, to update drivers, network adapters, and so forth, go to the Sony site and download your particular driver. 
Model # VPCEB42FX  |* change model...
This model is also known as: PCG71318L, VPCEB42FX/BJ, VPCEB42FX/T, VPCEB42FX/WI.

Two Network Adapters on my Sony VAIO:  1)  Intel (R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN.  2)  Marvell Yukon 88E8059  PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller.  When I run the 2nd one, I get this message, "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action.  Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel."

HowtoGeek pointed me in this direction.

First, I got the Code 31 Error.  
Also, got Error 711

This yellow exclamation mark means "Missing Driver."
