Default uninstall deterministic networks - how to remove

I don't think this will help masses of ppl - but I've spent hours trying to work out how to remove / uninstall a deterministic network adaptor (2 new device drivers that appeared after I installed winproxy 4 - ick))

firstly - they are required if you're running something like winproxy 4 or other things - a list of things can be found at

http://www.deterministicnetworks.com/mystery.html

including

3Com
Cisco
Flash Networks
Gilat Satellite
Gilian Technologies
HP (Openview PolicyXpert Agents)
IRE (SafeNet, SafeSoft)
ISS
Lucent
MindPort/Irdeto
NetIQ
Nokia
NetScreen
Ositis Software (WinProxy)
Progress Software (IPAccounting, IP QoS)
RedCreek (RavelinSoft)
SBE (PacketEyes)
SonicWall (VPN Client)
SSH
StarBand
WinProxy (Ositis Software)

Firstly if you uninstall the app - it should remove them (unless another app needs them) this didn't happen in my case, removing the deterministic drivers (or attempting to) means they reinstall themselves on reboot (forcing you to reboot again) this happens every time you install TCP/IP..

The drivers might say somthing like "deterministic networks mac shim" - its just like a virtual device adpator.

In control panel > system > device manager

select the device, an click properties, then look at the driver files, you should be able to work out the device release number (mine were 2.05)

now goto

http://www.deterministicnetworks.com/dne.html

an look at the referance for you're release, there it will tell you how to remove the dam thing, on mine I have a file called dneinst.exe (just search your disk for it) an follow the instructions,

something like

dneinst -Uninstall -InstallPath C: \PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\DETERM~1\dne -Verbose

on the DOS prompt

run that a few times (it will appear to have done nothing) but checking the device manager should show its been removed., once removed you can now delete the folder under common files (or rename it just to be safe)..

enjoy
