    When you unplug the dongle, do you stop the USB device first or do you just pull it out?

    I have to pull it out as it freezes explorer.exe

    POST #26 shows Av/Firewall are NOT and issue for the TCP setting and access to the internet. This is what I was after :)

    From other comments, I question if the system was set to not AUTORUN or AUTOPLAY USB devices - - if so, that might interfere with driver access to the device.

    I was about to comment on the link in post #23 but then saw the post#27 error in NTDLL.DLL. IMO, that error is incompatibility - - but where?

    Have you been asked to run SFC / SCANNOW ? If not, please do so WITH the dongle inserted to the pc.

    It fixed something, something that has nothing to do with the Dongle... The dongle still isn't working, anything else...?
