Can you uninstall the device (click start, right click computer and select Manage)
then go to device manager
look for it, right click on it and select uninstall
restart the computer and keep pressing F8 until you see a menu
Choose Safe Mode
Then install the adapter
once done, restart the computer and let me know please if it still will not work
