Hi Olly,
I deleted the contents of ndiswrapper.conf, entered blacklist ndiswrapper in gedit but it said I do not have permission to save the file. I restored file to initial state. Please advise.

Edit the /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper.conf file and either delete all
the existing lines, or comment them out by sticking a # symbol at the
start of each line.  Then add a new line reading 'blacklist
ndiswrapper'.  That should stop that module from ever being loaded.
