Cannot get device manager to uninstall drivers for mobile dongle

I am having trouble getting my vodaphone dongle for internet access on the road installed. My PC refuses to install the drivers properly. It worked fine but it has been about 9 months since I last used it. I have made sure I have the latest drivers downloaded from vodaphone and when I try the dongle in my sons laptop it installs and works fine. I thought I would uninstall the driver from device manager but when I try to do this it just sits there for hours. I have to end up closing device manager down using task manager. Any help much appreciated. I am running W7 on an HP G62 Notebook

Contact vodaphone or HP, sounds like drivers are not compatible. You try installing the drivers that did work with it>
