I am running Windows Vista Ultimate on a Dell Inspiron 9400. I have the Verizon broadband service with USB adapter. After downloading the Vista compatible software, the card and service worked perfectly for 1 week. Then the VZ Access Manager stops loading. The application log has the following error:
Faulting application VZAccess Manager.exe, version 126.96.36.1998, time stamp 0x45c3814f, faulting module SMWiFi6.dll, version 188.8.131.522, time stamp 0x45538556, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x00002572, process id 0x13d8, application start time 0x01c76cb886499270.
I have reinstalled the program numerous times, including manually clearing the registry of all keys associated to the USB card as well as the VZ Access Manager software. Instantly upon reinstall this error occurs. Any ideas on how to repair this?
Doing a google search on the SMWifi6.dll returns 0 responses as of this morning.
