To date the problem has been detected on systems with the following combinations of chipsets and operating systems: - Intel 815E chipset and Windows 2000 - Intel 845E chipset and Windows 2000 - Intel 850 chipset and Windows 2000 - Intel 860 chipset and Windows 2000 This issue can be corrected by completing either of the following: 1) Download and install the latest GEAR driver set. [↑] Please Note: Completely removing the GEAR driver set from your system may result in GEAR software applications and any applications using the GEARwrks API not being able to "see" any recorders.

[↑] WARNING: Modifying the registry can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system.

The latest GEAR driver installer will install drivers that do not require or include the service.

The current driver installer will not remove and the GEAR Security service from Windows 2000 and Windows XP systems, if these older drivers are present.

Unless you have reason to believe that your system requires the gearsec service (see below), you should use this version of the GEAR drivers.
