I have a wireless card that is causing me some serious trouble.
I need the device to stop installing the driver it is currently using. I went into the hardware settings and set it to ask me what to do, and not use windows update.
I uninstalled the device, then I unplugged and replugged. Despite this, windows still selects the driver that is already present and re-installs the device. On other devices, I usually see an advanced option under uninstall that allows me to permanently remove the drivers, but I did not see that option for this one. I had to go nuclear and wipe out the specific driver (from all backups in the system) for the device to prevent it from being automatically installed. Is there an easier way to do this in the future?
