Uninstall Client Services for Netware?

On my backup computer I am unable to switch between users using the fast switching screen. I got into Users in the Control Panel and I'm getting the below message and it does not allow me to make any changes. Any idea where to go to uninstall Client Services for Netware?

It is in your network adapter properties...

Control Panel > Netowrk Connections > right click on your network adapter > Select properties.

Select Client for Netware Services and click Uninstall.

That's where I thought it would be to but it's not listed with the other adapters. Any other ideas?

Check Add/Remove programs in the control panel. Look for the Novell Client for Windows and ZENWorks desktop agent. Remove both if you have them. Be sure to remove ZENWorks desktop agent first.

It won't be listed with the other adapters. Find the adapter that you are running off of (most likely "local area connection" then "right click" on it and do "properties". It should be in the list with TCP/IP, file and printer sharing, Client for Microsoft Networks, etc. Uninstall it from the list. Some older versions of the client need a uninstall program downloaded from Novell.

OK, still no luck with getting this resolved. I've Google search this and apparently there are a ton of people who have had this problem. There is so much crap that I'm still digging through stuff (been reading through one thread for 20 minutes now with all the responses). Is it not a simply uncheck Client Client Services for Netware, it is not listed. I've even been looking through some Registry hacks with no luck. I did a System Restore a couple of so weeks to fix this and the problem is back. I'm not sure if it's something my neice or nephews might have installed, damn my mom for giving them her password (note to self to remove my mom from being an admin on this computer ).

So I'm still looking for a resolution. One thing I'd like to ask is if I do a System Restore what exactly do I lose? I just moved all my music and photos to this computer so I can format my box and it would take some time to back that stuff up. Shit I should back that stuff anyway but I'm short on time this week to start doing that. Help!!!

Check your services.msc to see if you have a service called "Client services for Netware". Is it there? Running? Disable it and reboot.

I hate Netware crap, sometimes reinstalling netware over itself allows you to remove it.

It was there (first time to actually see any signs of Netware installed on this computer) and I disabled it and rebooted but still no luck

Dammit! Any other ideas? I'm actually thinking about installing Client Services for Netware and then removing it.

One thing I came across while Googling was that removing the CSFN (Client services for Netware) may disable file and printer sharing. Now this whole problem occured around the time I installed a new HP Laser Jet. Is it possible that installing the drivers and software for it may have started this problem? Just rambling here.

Now I've got an email from my cousin saying he's having the same problem with his laptop (that I sold him!) that just popped out of the blue. Haven't really had him check for anything since he's not local and I haven't had the time to spend on the phone with him.

Is this just a weird coincidence?

I would give installing and then removing the netware shit a try. If your computer had a preloaded OS on it when you bought it they probably through the kitchen sink at it when they put 'their' OS load on it. For some reason they think people still use netware. I've seen something similar to this with a store bought PC I was fixing for a friend. It never had any signs of netware on it until something was installed. Then for some reason netware decided to stick its ugly head out. Since the pre-load was jacked a little I couldn't uninstall it like you aren't able too. I just installed it and then was able to sucessfully uninstall it.

Really the best solution is if this is a preloaded OS, is to scrap it and load from an original Windows CD, not a OS restore. Then you wont have all that crap loaded they throw in there. To each his own...

Damn. I was hoping I could find an easy fix but no such luck I'm surprised to how many hits I came up with in a quick Google search detailing the exact same problem and no one has a solution for it.

I'll post up what happens, thanks for all of the help!

Well it was a PITA but I installed the Netware Client and removed it and all is well. Thanks for all of the suggestions. Ultimately Google wasn't of much help, everybody kept suggesting to uninstall Netware but on all the links I found nobody could find that it was even installed and there was a maddening loop of the same suggestion to remove it LOL!
