Corrupted WAN Miniport(PPPOE) driver

Recommended Posts

jvin   

Hi,

 

I've IBM Thinkpad with Windows XP. My laptop was infected with Spyware.

 

With great help from PC pitstop forum, I could successfully clean the system.

 

Some of the drivers were corrupted too.

 

I was able to uninstall them and after rebooting they are fine.

 

When I try to uninstall WAN Miniport (PPPOE), I get error message "Failed to uninstall. The device may be required to boot up the computer".

 

Can some one please tell me how to fix this?

 

Thanks,

jvin.

Open the Device Manager.  Under View, select Show hidden devices.

 

Expand the category that includes WAN Miniport (PPPOE), usually Network adapters or Non-Plug & Play Drivers.  Right-click WAN Miniport (PPPOE) and click Update Driver.  Select Install from a list, then select Don't search.  Click Next and Finish to reinstall the Windows driver.

 

You may need to restart the computer.

I tried uninstall again and it worked.

How do I reinstall it again? I don't see it under Device Manager?

In the Device Manager, click Action, then Scan for hardware changes.  Or, restart the computer.
