RE: cannot uninstall or reinstall NETGEAR WG111T wireless adapter
Well thanks Mick,
WG111T is a wireless USB2.0 Adapter therefore I would not need a
screwdriver, I just pull it out. I've done that already. Problem is that when
I go to the control panel - uninstall manager in Vista and when I click
uninstall on Netgear wireless USB2.0 adapter I get the before mentioned error
message. When I try to install newer setup package for USB adapter I get the
same message in installshield. The message says: "that an error has occured
while running the setup. Please make sure you have finished any previous
setup and closed other applications. If the error still occurs, please
contact your vendor."
The only other option I haven't tried is through the device manager. There I
have the following options: driver details, update driver, disable and
uninstall. Which path should I choose?
I have a similar problem with Quicktime. I cannot uninstall it. I don't get
any error messages, but when I get to the stage when "quicktime" is gathering
required information" uninstall stops. I can leave it for 10 minutes and
nothing happens - still the same message. I wonder is there a problem with
vista or with the mentioned applications. My computer is 3 weeks old, so I
don't know what to think.
