I have not had any of this but I could see where it would be a good idea and also why not.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I have an old asus h series board.
It does come with a lot of extra software, but I only load the drivers.
However I have noticed this with some of my mice, logitech, microsoft, etc and cameras and other hardware like my printers and the like.
You can turn some of this off but I have never had a bad experience with it and in fact like that my hardware is loading its own drivers rather than letting windows use generic drivers.
I do think there should be more control of this stuff though as malware users could write straight to the bios though a lot of this stuff can be secured against.
Its another thing to check when setting up for the first time though.
I have recently setup an old hp server for one of my uncles which was set to start and shut down at certain times as well as load a load of extras as it was set for a business.
When it was sold x lease no one thought to clear the bios and eufi so I needed a friend who I had about to fix that but its ok now.
So obviously I will have to be carefull and get people to go through eufi every time I set things up.
I don't want extra junk being installed, I want control of what is loaded.
Now if there is a way to control within the os what is loaded, and how its kept updated maybe I'd be happy with that.
