    I went to the LG site and downloaded the USB drivers for the phone and installed them. Then I connect the phone and did see it show up in Windows explore right under the hard drive. Seemed like it would be working but then the phone installed some driver and killed the whole thing. Whatever the phone installed I am sure is where the problem is. I do know the drivers are saved in Windows/system32/drivers and as long as it is there the computer will continue to try and install them. The solution would most likely be to remove the driver file from that folder. Not knowing exactly what the file is called I am unable to do this.

    Simply going to device manager and uninstalling the driver does not remove the file from the directory above. If some sort of uninstaller was available I would use that to completely remove any entry that exists on the computer from the phones install of software. Would also remove all that the USB driver from LG installed and start over. This time not allowing the phone to install anything. The connection obviously worked from installing the drivers from the LG site or the phone would not have been able to install what it did. Without attempting a system recovery before the install does anyone know exactly what the phone did install so I can get rid of it?

    Currently the phone is not listed in Windows Explore and a USB driver is showing up as an unknown device. That unknown device is most likely what the phone installed that made things not work. Have reinstalled the drivers from LG and it is not fixing the problem but sure it will if I can completely undo what both installed. Any uninstallers available or the names of the driver files that did get installed? This is a bad driver issue not the phone, cable, or computer hardware.
