Windows 7: I can't remove Netgear software!

I can't remove Netgear software!

I was using a Netgear WG111v3 wifi adapter on my desktop until I installed wired Ethernet for it so I don't need it anymore. I want to uninstall the drivers and software from it from the Control Panel Uninstall Programs

The uninstaller runs, after pressing "next" EVERY running program, including the own uninstaller closes forcibly, and the taskbar disappears for a second. And the program still remains there. I've tried Revo Uninstaller but the same thing happens does anyone know how can I remove this thing?

Many thanks

In Search type services.msc and hit Enter. Scroll to WLAN Auto Configuration, double click it and set it to Disabled, then Stop the service and try again. This will have to be reenabled if you go wireless again.
You can also try the Driver Sweeper link below my sig.
