Windows 7: issues with USB wifi recievers

issues with USB wifi recievers

Here's my spec:
Intel Core i5-750(stock clock)
GTX 260+
Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit

Hello there I'm new to this forum

I used to have an Edimax EW-7711uan USB reciever. When I try to install it with the the reciever plugged in, the prograss bar stuck and didn't move. I plugged out the reciever and the installation was completed. But after that, the software that runs the reciever cannot detect the reciever when I plug it in, and windows can't find a proper driver to run the reciever. The real headache is that when the reciever is plugged in, I can't either shut down my computer or boot it up(after the windows loading screen, everything went black)

I thought it was the manufacture's problem of not making the driver work on windows 7 since it worked fine in two XP systems that I used to own. So I bought a Tenda W311U reciever and the same problem occured: Can't install while the reciever is attached and the software can't detect that damn reciever. But this time Windows says they've found a driver that can run the reciever as soon as I pulled out the new reciever. But I still can't make it to work.

Since both of the recievers suffer from a similar problem, I do think I've done something wrong in the Windows setting to cause such a problem, can anyone help?
