Speedtouch 330 USB driver problems

Well, for once, a problem of my own to report. I’m having some issues with the Speedtouch USB drivers. I installed a USB device that caused my system to go absolutely haywire. When I uninstalled it, a bunch of other devices went a bit nuts as well. Tried to reinstall the Speedtouch and now Windows XP keeps redetecting the device. I’ve narrowed it down, it’s definitely an issue with the drivers themselves on the system, but can’t seem to fix it. I’m updating this from my laptop right now (useful information, the Speedtouch drivers install fine in Vista Home Premium!)

Thankfully I’m not the only one with this issue. So, I’ll let you guys know how to fix it and if what The Scream forum people suggest works.

Also, thanks to SFC for the link (acronym to protect the delicate sensibilities!) It’s a funny blog, full of rage.

Edit: The Scream walk through works. Beware though, the French download from CCCleaner doesn’t actually work. Australian does.

18 month contracts up in October

It was April 2006 when Charles Dunstone announced ‘free’ broadband. The 18 month contracts will come to a close next month.

PC Pro thinks this will mean a mass customer exodus. (hey, thanks for the link PC Pro! 🙂 )

What do you guys think? Are you going to stick around? Move to a different provider? Go into the new nuclear family warmth of BT?
