I'm having severe trouble with these instructions, its almost like they are incomplete,
It states to follow steps 1-3 to reset to default but steps 1-3 are installing the driver and software, so how do you reset to default???

Anyone else encountered this problem? I've now "bricked" 2 PC's and had to reinstall windows on both.
