Make sure that all other adapters are disabled or not connected. Right click on the adapter icon in the tray & tell it to use windows to manage the connection. Take the Sabrent software out of the startup. That's in msconfig, startup tab.

There is supposed to be a choice that says let windows manage the connection. I don't know why you don't see it. Are you right clicking on the icon in the tray? That's the bottom right corner, near the clock.

The wifi list is on the left click, not the right click.

I'm totally lost. I don't know why it's not working. Make sure that USB is enabled in the BIOS & device manager. That's my last thought on the subject.
