It seems like you're just uninstalling the software that goes along with the adapter. If you right click on my computer and go to properties, and then go to the hardware tab, you should be able to click device manager. Scroll down and find your adapter, and double click it. It will allow you to uninstall the adapter. Next time, when you restart the computer, it should detect the adapter again, and reinstall itself. However, I dont know if the adapter is the problem if your wireless problems. Try posting your problem in the networking section if it doesnt work.
