    Uh oh... I created a thread earlier, but i seem to have misplaced it. I hope it's alright to make a new one, in the right category?

    Well, here it goes.

    I did something i've done before, the rare times my internet has refused to connect...i went to System and uninstalled the network adapter, so that when i rebooted my computer it would install itself and start working again. Except, this time... it says there is an error. :/

    The network adapter is VIA PCI 10/100Mb Ethernet Adapter #4
    and when i try to install it, it says:

    "An error occured during the installation of the device. The system cannot find the file specified."

    I've tried uninstalling and rebooting about three times now, and it happens each time. Not sure what else i could do... i looked up the network adapter on google and found a website where apparently i can download the adapter, but i don't know if that is the right thing to do and i'm afraid of messing it up even more, heh. This is the website: http://www.soft32.com/download_182790.html

    Thanks in advance~ :/
