    Ah, yeah.
    i'm having some troubles with my laptop.

    When i was using it at skool, the admin put all of teh novell networking software on it so i could l could link into the school network.

    Only problem is, i dont go to school anymore, so i want all of this crap off of here. Although it appears to be WAYYYYY harder than i thought.

    I used the uninstaller program which is located at C:/install/client32/admin but it doesnt seem to remove of all teh components and files. and things started to screw up.

    so from teh same directory i re-installed it.

    so how do i get rid of this crappy software, as it keeps interfereing with my homenetwork.


    also, the strupid dick put a startup message that pops up when teh pc loads, and when you click "ok" it lets you log in. how do i get rid of this.

    thanks

    the only way that i'm 100% sure it'll go away is with the goof ol' "format c:" :D....
    but if you can't format it for one reason or another.... you'll have to ask someone else

    Yeah, I agree with Andy. Unfortunately that stupid Novell stuff hijacks everything that is networking. For some reason the uninstaller never takes it back to the way it was. You're doing it the right way. But I've never seen it removed cleanly. I would also suggest a format.

    hmmm

    damn

    i REALY dont wanna format it

    i have no way of backing up my data on it (it wont recognise the home network nomore)

    oh, i forgot to mention teh $8k worth of software i leeched from teh school network..... that and teh other 2GB of videos and stuff i downloaded.

    school's high speed net finally came in hany :)

    most of the software is distributed through novell, which means i dont have any of the install files

    short list of what i got.... for free, and certainly dont want to loose.

    Macromedia Studio Mx (flash, fireworks, dreamweaver etc.)
    Macromedia freehand 9
    Corel Draw 8
    Photoshop 7
    MS Office 2000
    a few other bits and pieces.

    actually, somehting just hit me:

    go to here and dl the bootdisk, follow the instructions, and you can backup your stuff over the network, just won't be with a gui

    You didn't mention which OS you're using, but this guide might be of some help.

    good guide.

    I've found that it is also occasionally neccessary to open up network properties and manually remove everything. all adapters/protocols/etc. then manually reinstall windows networking..
