Ah, Duh - M1, can't update Visual C++ until I get internet back up on that computer and can't do that until I am able to delete the ATT comm manager and re-install.
And THAT can't be done until I solve this Administrator problem.
Often times an uninstall is hampered by the program remaining running in msconfig>Startup or msconfig>Services. Check there (after hiding all MS Services) to make sure it's unchecked then try to uninstall again. You may even need to reinstall it to uninstall it properly in Control Panel>Programs and Features.
You'll get best performance if you keep both lists cleared of all but your AV and the ATT app if it creates your connection automatically. If you have to click it anyway to connect, then keep it out of Startup list.
You may need to plug in by wire or connect to another network using Windows 7 wireless in System tray long enough to get this squared away.
You may also benefit by System Restoring to well before all the mess began, then update Visual C++ and try updating ATT again. If this fails try the steps I gave you above to uninstall and reinstall.
