You can go into Device Manager and delete the SoundBlaster card.

Go to Control Panel.
Double click the 'System' icon.
Click the Hardware tab.
Click the Device Manager button.
You will see a list of hardware devices recognised by your system.
Your soundcard will be under 'Sound and Audio devices'.

Reboot and when Windows detects the SoundBlaster again cancel the install wizard and double click your new driver exe file. (It is an exe isn't it? If it's a zip you have to unpack it to a folder you can find easily.)
