I recently bought on amazon a wireless wifi adapter (dual band 5GHz and 2.4GHz), but after 10 seconds of plugging it in the computer crashes on me and the blue screen comes up: ATTEMPTED EXECUTION OF NON-EXECUTE MEMORY.... i searched online and they all had different solutions, and i tried all of them: updated my drivers, removed virus and malware, removed registry errors and even refreshed my pc.... but alas nothing works. I even bought a errorkit (29.00$) to fix the problem (while scanning it claimed that it found this error and it can fix) but even that didn't work! Now i'm frustrated and out of ideas. What is the problem here, and how can i solve and get rid of this annoying error?

How did you install the adapter? Did you just plug it in? Did you go through control panel? Is it 64 bit? Lot's of questions to answer to see if it is compatible with your system. I personally would never uninstall my security to install anything. This would be a red flag for me not to  use that particular wireless adapter. But then again I do not have any answers as of yet. Once...a long time ago...I had to run an app that updated all the drivers so I could install a new hardware component...it worked very well for what I needed. Are your drivers all up to date?

I did upgrade all my drivers, and that is not the problem! As for your other point, i'm not sure if adapter is 64 bit, but if it is would that make my computer crash? Also what do you mean by installing through control panel (never heard of that)?
