Go to the manufacturer's web page(s) for the hardware product(s) in question
and install the proper driver(s) for the product(s) from there.
In the future - I would recommend that you not install any hardware related
drivers from Microsoft's update site. I say this because it is not *always*
the case - but sometimes the drivers Microsoft offered up are several
versions behind the actual drivers offereed by the manufacturer (since the
manufacturer has to submit them to Microsoft for approval, etc in order for
them to appear on the update site.) Sometimes - by the time they make it up
there - the manufacturer may have found issues with said released and
released new versions to remedy those issues.
Also - in the future - do not assume anyone here will have any clue as to
what Operating System you are running. Sure - you gave a hint by stating
that your "Windows Experience Index" has been reduced - but if someone did
not know what that was - they would not know (given where you posted and per
the lack of information given) what OS you had.
For those wondering:
In your case, cheese, you should likely visit the manufacturer of your
computer as a whole to ge the drivers you seek. (HP, IBM, Acer, Compaq,
Dell, etc...) I say this because SiS does not really sell their products -
but produces chipsets that get put into components sold by others. Your
best driver support for what looks to be your motherboard chipset and built
in video/network devices (into the motherboard likely) is from said company
whose brand name is on your computer.
However - since you gave the details...
That is where the chipset supported drivers can be obtained. I would
*still* recommend you take my previous advice about gett8ing said drivers
from the brand-name manufacturer of your entire computer.
