Go into device manager and right click on that unknown USB device
What are the options on the context menu?

I'm sorry that I was not clear. The context menu is the options that comes up when you first right click on the item of interest.

I was wondering what the context menu shows once you right click on the unknown USB device entry within the device manager. I do not have such an entry so I'm guessing that my menu will not be the same as the one that you see.

What I was hoping to do - was to try something like the option to "Update Driver Software" [not sure if you will have that option]. Then find a step that lets you point it to the folder where that INF file is. You might end up just like you did on step 11 of that tutorial, but I thought it was worth a try.

Just out of curiosity, is the path to that inf:
....Belkin\USB F5D7050\Wireless Utility\Win7_64
or
....Belkin\USB F5D7050\Wireless Utility\Win7_32
