Intel Network adapter

For some reason I cant upgrade my network adapter because I cant uninstall the old drivers. I've tried everything i can think of including deleting it from the device manager, add/remove program, and even the registry. It's asking for a file called PROSETDX.msi which there are many of but none of them work. HELP! TIA!

Hello there, um.. you don't need to uninstall your old drivers to upgrade them (unless you already tried that and it didn't work)

Usually i update my drivers via the device manager, right click the device i want to update, update driver, find the driver on my PC (or something), search for the folder where you have the driver and click next..

If you get the zip file of the drivers from Intel, and extract them to your hard drive, you should be able to manually upgrade them through Device Manager.

Thanks for the help guys. It was actually an exe file. I just extracted the files and updated the drivers manually. I completely forgot I could do that. Thanks again!
