Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
I made the mistake of installing Linksys network on my Dell desktop which uses Vista.
I downloaded CC cleaner as you suggested but the Linksys program does not show up in the tools section.
It shows up in my "network" & when I open the Linksys icon & try to "disable" it states "not possible to disconnect, currently busy with connect or disconnect operations" Any other ideas?
Did you install the driver? you also have to be sure that you installed a vista driver....if your cd-driver for linksys does not work download the vista driver from teh linksys website. i also suggest if you can't install the vista driver for your linksys properly i suggest you copy the driver to a cd and install it from there( meaning install the router using the cd). I also suggest you uninstall it from the control panel- add/remove programs before installing the new driver. also try installing the driver or linksys w/ your firewall off it also has to be configured to allow the program

Cailintech has good suggestions. One thing though, make sure that the router is not hooked up when you are trying to uninstall because there will be files being used which you want to have uninstalled and by default, Vista won't usually allow that.
Since I am short for time, I am making a couple of assumptions without checking them for correctness before recommending.
Some routers are set up to a computer by going to an ip address and going through the setup process. If the router is not soft-linked to your network, and since it is between your modem and your computer, it could and probablyu will foul up everything.
If you call linksys, they should help you. If they say there is a charge for help, try to call back a couple of times to see if you can get a friendly tech support person. Also see if they have on-line chat. Many times, that is a way to get support with out having to pay. I don't think this will be an issue.
