    Hi Keano88, and welcome to AF :)

    If you have installed 2.3 already then unrevoked won't work anyway. You need to use revolutionary instead. There's a guide to this in the All Things Root forum.

    You may still need to install the drivers, but give it a go and let us know if there's still a problem.

    I should move this thread to the root forum anyway :)

    If that doesn't work you could try contacting HTC technical support. They don't know you are going to uninstall it again.

    No worries about which forum you posted in :)

    Afraid I'm not much of a windows user though, so can't help much with drivers. I assume you are running the install as administrator.

    Bazcabs thanks for that link I will try it in the morning. And if it don't work then I will have to give htc tech support a ring and see what they day. Thing is i can install the hboot driver without any issues. Just when i install HTC sync I get the error message.. yea hadron I have been administrator on bpth installs of the HTC spftware and still an error message ..
