[Winpcap-users] Winpcap 3.1 install problems under Windows XP SP2

Hello, I tried to install Winpcap 3.1 using the NSIS installer. After 
I clicked the Install button and it ran for a while, the installer 
stopped responding. (The program said "not responding" in the title 
bar and in task manager, so I had to kill it. My capture application 
(namely, a Snort experiment) does work so it seems at least some or 
all of Winpcap is installed. My concern is two fold: 1) the 
installation was partial and will make my networking stack unstable, 
and 2) I can't remove Winpcap. When I try to run the installer again 
it says winpcap is already installed. Winpcap does not show up under 
add/remove programs in control panel.

Is there a way to force uninstall, or manually uninstall, or verify 
successful installation? I've searched the archives and haven't seen 
a similar question. Thanks.
