Windows 7: Repair Corrupted driver after new motherboard install

Repair Corrupted driver after new motherboard install

So I changed to a new motherboard, and now having issues getting my wifi usb dongle to work.

It installs fine but does not enable. When I diagnose it, it says "there might be a problem with the driver for the wireless network adapter".

I assume windows is looking for it in the registry, but I guess some keys in there are pointing to the wrong place etc.

I've tried about 15 programs cleaning and repairing the registry

But it still didn't fix it, is there a way to totally remove all traces of it from the registry and remove all driver files?
How do I clean or repair it - without having to do a system repair?

Did you clean install the OS when replacing the motherboard? If not do so.
