    Does the Asus Live Update program actually do anything?

    It tells me that I don't have any updates that I need. However, when I go out to the asus support site I see a new bios has been released, along with new audio drivers, and who knows what else.

    10.1 GPU drivers, although those are about 7 month old...we're expecting newer drivers shortly (!). And no, Live update does nothing, apart from hijacking system resources. Please uninstall and never look back.

    I just uninstalled it...and what else do we need to remove?

    I still have:

    Asus splendid utility
    Splendid compatibility tool
    Express gate

    can I remove those 3?

    I also get this message?! I have updated my Bios to 211 myself, updated my vBios also, and done a clean install of windows 7 and decided i'd download the asus live update, and i get htis message.

    It comes under 'BIOS' - 'Drivers' and has these options, though if i have updated the bios myself surely?? I dunno im just confused as to what to do. Any help appreciated.

    Any help greatly appreciated before i go and balls up my laptop even more than it already is :S

    Don't.

    Uninstall Asus Live Update. Its the first thing you should do really.

    Anybody who owns a G73JH should be capable enough to keep their machine up to date with the necessary software. Think of it as a test of worthiness to ride the beast.

    Plus Chastity already did/and is doing, all the work for you, that sublime goddess of a being.

    Bookmark her ROG software/application reference forum thread and subscribe an email notification to it.
    There you have it. Live updates for software, drivers and everything you need for your G73 (and its incarnations).

    Cheers mate! Uninstalling as we speak. While i'm here, is there any threads or sites that have a complete guide to updating the G73 with all the very LATEST drivers? I have a feeling i have incompatibility going on somewhere in my system as im finding it hard to play certain games :S

    Oh and also...if you wouldnt mind, where would i find Chastity's ROG software/application thread? Sorry to be a noob.
