Driver issues after win 7 upgrade

The driver \Driver\umbus failed to load for the device Root\UMBUS\0000.
Have this and many others that are sparatic. This happened yesterday at 3am and today the same time. The only difference is that today my keyboard stopped responding after i logged in. I tried to reinstall drivers. The synaptics driver fixed the mouse until today. Also i did a install over XP, and i think that this may have caused it. The problem is that if i reinstall my keycode will not work. it is MSDNA grouo keycode from the college. Any ideas? Currently in safe mode on the computer being affected. It is a Asus G50Vt -X1
EDIT: I had Win 7 64bit, and that is what i installed when this acted up, installed before and did a complete format and never had any issues so i believe this is what is causing it. So i guess i will suck it up and reinstall 7 and just go through the reactivation process.

If you want a stable system, why not Install Win7 on a fresh disk (sorry), then run your favorite virtualization software and run XP inside as a virtual machine? Your keycode software will "probably" still work, and this will future-proof you as your nice little WinXP virtual machine will run on any hardware config.  This also frees you from driver issues.  All things considered, you shouldn't have any significant performance issues, and games and things which will talk directly to the hardware can be installed under Win7.

I think that is the  UserMode Root Bus Enumerator and is just a part of Windows. So if it is not working (and you have many other issues as noted above), I think you probably are faced with a re-install. You could try a System Restore to a prior period, but I have my doubts.

If you do resinstall and install Windows 7 64-bit (that is what I use), then make sure all of your drivers and all of your software is 64-bit compliant. This was the biggest hurdle I faced moving to 64-bit. ... Thinkpads_User

At the ASUS site are a number of downloads you need to install with a major notable absense; the Intel Chipset Utility.  The chipset drivers are the first which ought to be installed after you install an O/S.  Here are the Intel chipset drivers for your system: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=18494&lang=eng  Do them and then go look at tha ASUS site for the rest.

Windows 7 contains legacy drivers to get you through installation until Windows Updates come in.  I myself have never had to install chipset drivers in Vista or Windows 7; however, some do require it.
If worries about rearm count, run mgadiag - last tav - rearm count -
go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012
Finally, to get a better handle on the health of your system, run PERFMON Report -
START | type perfmon /report

Windows 7 automatically configures drivers for your Hardware,however some old drivers fail to install since they may not be available with the windows installation package.Please check the website of the hardware manufacturer and download drivers compatible with windows 7 to enable the hardware to work.

Thanks
