    I recently downloaded an updated driver for my laptop PC's Atheros AR5001X Mini PCI wireless network adapter but when I tried to install it the installation fails and I get an "Access is denied error". The following is an extract from the setupapi.log:

    #-166 Device install function: DIF_INSTALLDEVICE.

    It looks like a registry permissions error but I can't work it out. Any suggestions guys?

    Try installing it within Safe Mode, which is accessible using the Boot Menu. To access it reboot the PC and depress F8 after the hardware is listed.

    Thanks for the suggestion but no luck. I tried installing the driver in safe mode but got the same error message as before.
