    Getting “MS ISATAP Adapter not working” error on Windows Vista

    For the past few weeks, my laptop running on Windows Vista showing the error message “MS ISATAP Adapter Device is not working properly. Windows cannot load the required device drive, ROOT/*ISATAP/0000” on the screen. It also displays an error code 31 along with the message. How can I get rid of this?

    Try to uninstall the device driver from your system and re-install it. You can uninstall the device from device manager or Program and Features. In the first case, you need to press the ‘Start’ button first and type devmgmt.msc into the search field in start menu. Press the ‘Enter’ key afterwards for bringing up a window. Then, find out ‘Microsoft ISATAP Adapter’ device from that window and right click on it. After that, choose the ‘Uninstall’ option and restart the system to bring up the change. If you choose the second method, then click the ‘Control Panel’ from start menu and wait until the ‘Control Panel’ window pop up on the screen. Navigate through that window and double click on ‘Programs and Features’ icon. This will show up the list of programs and items installed on your system. Locate adapter from that list and make a single click on it. Press the ‘Uninstall/Change’ button next to it and follow the instructions given on the screen.
