the system is a Dell Latitude X300

by mistake I installed a wrong driver for the Wireless adaptor...the minute setup was finished
the whole system BSODed...

The right driver is installed now but it keeps on BSOSing - how do I get rid of the wrong driver that
seems to be still in the system?

    Reboot computer, pres F8 at startup to enter boot menu and select Last Known Configuration. If this does not help can you access Safe mode? If yes, roll back to previous system restore point.

    First, remove the card.
    Second, access bios and disable USB if your card is usb type.

    Reboot system and get in safe mode, do uninstall there.

    Roling back system to a previous restore point worked....

    Luckily SR was turned on!

    Thanks Toniur and Punky.
