What is this? some sort of log.

Recently a computer that controls a some machinery crashed. when we went to contact the company whose software we use to control the machinery. They recovered the hard drive and and are now claiming that someone tried to install something that damaged or curropted the OS(windows2000). they attached this file(chipset update snippet), which seems to be a log of events, and they are claiming that it is evidence of our tampering. they forwarded the evidece to IT (me) to substantiate the claim. can anyone tell me what this is. I've done some research and from first glance it seems to be a driver installation. Our users cannot install software on their machines as our security is pretty tight. the guy that the company claims to have tampered with the machine is denying the claim. His job depends on this file. here's a printout of the file:

I agree, it was an install of the intel chipset drivers initiated at 2120hrs on 23 april 2005, might even be an automatic update from windows...???

BTW... this driver will only install if OS supports it and if native support is not already available. in other words it should not break an OS because if it's the wrong driver or not needed it wont install, it would be interesting to see the final part of the text showing whether the driver aborted or completed successfully.

So this isn't the result of someone trying to install a game. Thats good news, I wonder if windows update was really involved in this. I can't think of anything else that would do this. The company dials in remotely to connect to the computer's modem. I don't think that was it. Maybe this is just a dump from the work they did in recovering the hard drive. I don't think I mentioned that they had to recover the hard drive( the company). Does that sound right?

This could possibly be activity that the company performed during recovery of the hard drive, not what the hard drive was doing before it crashed. It is not conclusive to what happened to the computer that caused the crash.

its the Intel ICH5 drivers, as other people said. not only that but, the date...

AND, its for something thats obviously on the PCI bus, something already installed in the machine, so... id say odds on he hasnt tried to install it, and that it is an attempt by them later, or an auto install by the OS for a "new" device or for an update.

The other thing is, that the document isnt evidence at all.

If that person loses his job over this, i would recommend he sues. In taking away the machine and messing with it in the way they have, they have altered data and logs on the machine. And in doing so, made any "evidence" that might be on it, not worth the hard disk space its written on, a court would throw that "evidence" out because it is 'contaminated'
