but you can try this to see if it will help.

To grant Full Control permissions to the SYSTEM account, follow these steps:
On the Windows desktop, double-click My Computer. The My Computer window appears.
Right-click (C:) and then click Properties.
Click Sharing and Security.
On the Security tab, do the following:
If you are using Microsoft Windows XP, verify that the Group or user names box contains the SYSTEM user account.
If the SYSTEM user account does not appear in the box, follow these steps to add the SYSTEM account to the box:
Click Add. The Select Users or Groups dialog box appears.
In the Name field, click SYSTEM, and then click Add.
Click OK.
In the Permissions section, click to select the Full Control check all relevent boxes except Special Permissions under Allow, and then click Advanced.
Do the following:
If you are using Windows XP, in the dialog box that appears, click to select the Replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child objects check box for the SYSTEM account, and then click OK.
Note If you receive a security message, click Yes.
Wait for the operating system to apply the permissions that you have selected to all child folders. Restart the System and check to see if the Network adapters are working.
Try uninstalling the devices again and then reinstall.
If that doesn't work it may be time to do a fresh install as it appears that the Registry is corrupting. There is no longer a Restore point to go back to.

Darik's Boot and Nuke can be used to completely erase the drive.

Autonuke should do it by running it at least 3 times.

When it has finished, boot from the XP CD and reinstall. Recreate your Partitions and have your Motherboard CD ready so that you can load all of the Drivers for it.
