I have a new Linksys Wireless Adapter, and when I was setting it up, Vista automatically installed the wrong Drivers. If I uninstall those Drivers, I cannot install the correct ones until and reboot. Once I reboot, Vista will install the wrong ones again [I can't cancel/stop it].

How Do I Stop This?

First, how do you know they are the wrong drivers?

How do you know you have the right drivers?

What is the makeup of the drivers you want to install? What device?
