    One of my machines -- a 5 year old eMachine -- just started to display this error on bootup: Exception GIFException in module aviWUSB54GC.dll at 000252AF. The adapter is maintaining the wireless connection, but the Linksys icon has disappeared from the start tray, and can't be launched from the program list. Any quick remedy, or is it uninstall the associated Linksys software, then reinstall? How do I make certain to delete any corrupt files that may be scattered about?

    Hi Jerry,

    Is the Linksys software you mentioned the software that manages your wireless on your PC? If so, I used the Linksys software before, and I finally uninstalled it and allowed Windows to manage the wireless connections rather than any third party software, and it worked very well, even in XP. It is even better than ever in Windows 7.

    Try letting Windows manage your wireless to see if that resolves the problem.

    I've gotten rid of the error, but am waiting to see whether the Linksys software gives me any more/new trouble. If so, I'll go with Windows to manage the wireless. Thanks.
