Windows 7 Ultimate x64 bit
Microsoft Virtual Wi-Fi Miniport Adaptor Problems-BSOD

Hello Everyone

I have 2 USB wireless adapters, one is Alfa AWUS036H with Realtek chipset RTL8187L and the other is AWUS036NHR Realtek RTL8188RU Both adaptors are giving me hard time on a windows 7 64 bit installation whenever I try to enable the Microsoft Virtual Wi-Fi Miniport Adaptor on any of them. Any attempts to update or fiddle with the drivers on the Virtual adapter will immediately BSOD the system. I have installed and uninstalled the drivers and ccleaned after reboot at least 20 times but to no use. I have also tried several versions of drivers including the ones from Alfa (manufacturer) and the newest ones from Realtek.

Both adapters work fine in another windows 7 64 bit computer, which leads me to believe that they are conflicting with other drivers or devices installed in my computer and I have no idea how to find out. Unfortunately formatting the computer is not an option right now.

Any help will be greatly appreciated
