Did you look in the System Event log? (right-click My Computer, choose Manage, double-click Event Viewer, then System.)

The first steps in trying to fix this, unless something obvious is in the Event log, would be to uninstall the software if it's in Add/Remove Programs. Then open the Device Manager, double-click Network Adapters, right-click on the SMC PCI wireless adapter and choose Uninstall (that step actually uninstalls the drivers).
Search C-drive for SMCWPCIT.sys and delete all remaining copies. Reboot, cancel the hardware wizard, re-install the latest version of the software/drivers (4.0.0.167 does appear to be the latest version for part number 99-012084-445).
