    How do I remove the software for Linksys WUSB54G wireless from my husband's Sony Vaio with windows XP? I have tried the remove program in control panel with no luck. I have searched every file with the Linksys name, and removed what I could, but when I try to delete the driver it says the location is unavailable. When I try to delete the Wireless network monitor I get a similar message. avlWusb54Gv4.dll cannot be removed. Access denied. I have unchecked the "read only" box in properties, and that didn't help. HELP! We aren't using this wireless on this computer any more but we are often barraged with illegal access error messages when we start the computer. Please help if you can. This is SO annoying!

    I think you are in the wrong forum. I would install linux on the entire drive.:eek:
    Or you could try and reinstall it then try to uninstall it from add/remove.

    Sometimes it helps to reinstall the software and then try uninstalling it.

    sounds like the computer is still using the program in the backround processes for some reason either find it on the list end process then try to delete it, or down load a nifty little program called killbox its on download.com this program will allow you to delete any file even it it is being used you can also set it to create a file with the same name and at the same time delete the real one and then delete the decoy it created its a handy program if youve managed to get a registry type virus or trojan.

    You may have compounded the problem by trying to remove it in 'bits and pieces'. Re-install and then try to uninstall via Add/Remove.

    This is a year old thread, I think the problem must be resolved by now, I'm going to close it.
