I bought a Netgear WG111t Wireless adaptor for my windows Vista (dual core AMD 5600+,1gig ram) but there was a problem with my ISP so I uninstalled the program to free up memory. When I was told my service was available again, I reinstalled it but it was bugged so I tried to uninstall it again. However it won't uninstall. Some applications disappeared but the only one that stayed was uninstall.exe. When I try to run it, it says that the program has uninstalled but when i try to run the install.exe it repeats the same as before: giving me uninstallation instructions. I downloaded the latest driver and tried uninstalling using the Vista uninstallation program in control panel but had the same problems.


Is there any way to rectify this?

Is there a device manager in Vista?
If there is, uninstall it from there.
Uninstalling the program usually doesn't remove the device.
But I'm xp and that's Vista...so I'm not really sure.
Remove the device physically from the computer though.
You knew that though I reckon....
