Try to delete the password files by going to find and then look for *.pwl files and delete them or rename them. This message can be caused by corrupted password file.  Let me know if this helps.

Temporarily if u r unable to get the latest driver you can try deleting the "CM8330SB.DRV & CM8330SB.VXD" file from the "\windows\system" directory and let windows create another one.

*if you encounter Access Denied Msg then use
  "deltree CM8330SB.* " on MS-DOS prompt
