Thx, but this is exactly what I did.

At least those were my first few approaches - before I started cleaning up the 
registry manually _AFTER_ uninstall and uninstall.bat.
WinPV never initializes reliably on that machine ... it is definitely an 
initialization issue. Once the drivers manage to initialize it works (as I 
said, mostly when I remove the NIC device in windows and reboot, or similar) - 
but that only lasts until the next reboot.

Let me know, if you cleaned anything in the registry _outside_ 
But I am now suspecting, that it is not related to the old gplpv drivers at all.
It might be something else on the machine.

I was hoping someone could read some useful hints from the logfiles or such...
