It's the software for the Compact Wireless-G USB Network Adapter with SpeedBooster, Version 1.07. Geez, I hope you can help me! I'm hating this cable cable that I'm having to use now which I have to step over to get in and out of my office.

Ok, discovered the uninstall issue and the recovery...
The culprit keeping the uninstall from completing, was an executable named BCMWLTRY.EXE, which was not only running, but was consuming tons of memory, to the point of depleting my paged memory, and requiring a reboot!
After killing this process, memory was restored and uninstall worked properly.
Furthermore, thanks to someone else's posting, just installing the driver allows my adapter to work (so far). As mentioned, exit the installation GUI when asked, then install the driver when prompted by the Windows installer.
FWIW: I couldn't find the offending process easily in Task Manager, but instead installed the Windows support tools, ran a tool named pmon.exe, which quickly showed BCMWLTRY.EXE had millions of page faults.
