Hi SD,

Sorry for the delay....the elderly relative has gone back in to hospital & is in palliative care so she will not be with us much longer. Understandably I am a bit distracted just now & also trying to sort out her affairs when she does leave us. 

May I ask for your patience while I get on top of that situation?  Thanks in advance!!

Hi SD,
Things have settled down here so I thought it would be a good time to get back to normal......
First let me say Thank You very much for your patience!!  
 
So, I went back to your post of 13JUN18, 08:29PM & worked on changing to the Administrator account.
I entered ctrl-alt-delete & signed out. When signing back in I was given two account options....'Sir!' & 'Administrator'.....I took Admin & no password was requested. 
On the run up I was presented with a few text screens saying "Welcome", "Happy you are here", "Lots of exciting features...."blah, blah...
Machine eventually loaded Windows with default Windows logo....no WiFi available on machine.
I downloaded the PROset64 WiFi application to the desktop & ran as Administrator........was given a message, 
"Windows Smart Screen can't be reached right now"...I ran on anyway.
I was then given error message, "Error Parsing, etc..."

Out of curiosity I had a look at Network Settings selections but it came up with a message, "This app can't open. Settings can be opened using the Built-in Administrator account. Sign in with a different account & try again."
I stopped there........
 
Again many thanks for your patience!   :D  :D

Hi,

 

There is a new Intel ProSet driver available on the website make sure you download the latest version.

 

Open the Start Menu and search for Windows Features on or off disable Net framework 4 and try to install the driver. On my tests the driver installation didn't ask for any net framework!

Hi SD,
 
Downloaded WiFi_20.60.0_PROSet64_Win10 to machine desktop.
 
In to Control Panel, Windows Features, turned off .NET Framework 4.6 Advanced Services. 
Hit 'OK' & it began "Searching for requested files"....., then message, "Windows completed he requested changes".
 
Ran WiFi PROSet 64 as Administrator....
Windows Smart Screen.....etc, Run anyway.....Error Parsing again....same error as before.

Also had a look at Installed programmes & noticed that "Intel PROSet/Wireless Software (26DEC2016, 240mb) was still listed as installed!.....

Hi,
 
Something isn't right! can you run other programs?
 
Using that entry on the list of installed programs right click and select Change, check if it gives the option to repair the installation of the Intel ProSet/Wireless
