Failed Xbox 360 Controller Driver

Posted on
Hi,
I'm having a problem installing a wired 360 controller to my windows 7 64 bit pc.
I understand that there are lots of threads about this, but the software seems to be so badly designed that every problem is unique and most answers have little relevance to my problem.
When I plug the controller into the USB port, it says 'USB device not recognized' and won't install the driver.
I have installed the driver software and it appears under the start menu, however when i try to manually update the driver via device manager, the driver does not appear in the menu. for clarity, I am talking about the 'manual driver update' process, I navigate to the Microsoft section but there is in the box is keyboard/officer drivers, no controller ones.
I read somewhere that this may be caused by permissions. but I am the only user on the system and so I have no idea how to remedy that.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
