Device Manager or the application stops responding when you use Device Manager or an application to uninstall the driver for a network adapter on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008

You try to use Device Manager or an application to uninstall the driver for a network adapter on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008. In this case, Device Manager or the application stops responding. Additionally, you notice that the TCP/IP-related registry entries for the driver did not inherit the permission settings of their parent registry entries.

This problem occurs when the Setup program for the driver uses an access control list (ACL) that has a revision level of 3 or that has a later revision level to create these TCP/IP-related registry entries.

There is a download that resolves this issue. See Hotfixes for details.
