Please note that most wireless adapter drivers are a complete part of
the bindled management software. If you uninstall the driver, you
will probably unstalled the manufacturer's complete driver. You need
to re-install the driver and then disable this management software
from auto-starting. There might be a service that needs to be turned
to "manual" start-up (Altheros is for mine.)
