Sounds like it is incompatible or corrupted. You can go to Netgear and download the latest driver/software and reinstall

I have already tried that, if i go to the site and search the model of my wireless adapter i get a list of drivers one of which says it is version 3.0 win7 compatible. When i click that it prompts me to sign up but i dont have the correct information but there is a "continue without registering" option, so i choose that uninstall the old driver restart and then install the new one. When it is installing it says it is version 2.0 instead of the advertised 3.0.

Well I would suggest then using Driver Sweeper to see about uninstalling NetGear drivers completely then try reinstalling again. If you need support on why it is installing that way, I would suggest calling the Netgear telephone number to help you further.

Also some basics to remove other possible issue

Download and run SPECCY, copy and paste the first tab to tell us WHAT your computer is and your idle temps
Download Malwarebytes do a full system scan (AV doesn't pick up alot of malware)
Did you install all Windows Updates? Including options except BING?
What Antivirus do you use? Is it subscription and paid for? If no AV, go to www.filehippo.com and download AVAST! or AVG and do a full system scan
Download and run Slim Drivers, install all the latest updates but you don't need to reboot until you do the last update
Download and run MSI Afterburner, what temps are you getting when underload?
Open Computer, Can Air dust out the bunnies and use paint brush on the vents, coolers, fans, etc.

Do still install and run Malwarebytes full scan. Even the best AV is designed to look completely opposite to how Malware works.

Download and run Slim Drivers, install all the latest updates you may not consider about and does a real good job I found.

You have Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit not XP. I don't think you have the correct software installed and when it tried to uninstall it craps out. You need to download Driver Sweeper (http://www.majorgeeks.com/mg/getmirror/driver_fusion_(driver_sweeper),1.html) to remove the Netgear drivers you have installed. Just don't "click" through the install, make sure to use OPTIONS so you can uncheck the 'additive' software the wrapper tries to install with it.

Then if you followed the webpage properly, you should be at this website http://support.netgear.com/product/WPN111 . On the right of the picture is WPN111 Software Version 3.0 (Supports Win 7) . Download and run the software from that, and let's see what happens.

That is the same file I have downloaded countless times, also the wpn drivers don't appear on the driversweeper list.

Well you have two choices then at this point.
1) Go buy a different Wifi adapter and see if that will install proper and use without further issue
2) Run Windows Easy Transfer to a External Hard Drive,
backup your personal data / settings,
get your Windows Recovery/Reinstall DVDs out,
download and made a DBAN CD to wipe the drive clean,
then reinstall Windows,
install the WPN111 again - nothing else
if it works, then install all Windows Update patches and options except Bing
Download from filehippo.com AVAST! or AVG
Download and run SLIM DRIVERS to update all hardware elements
Install all software you had before
Run Windows Easy Transfer and restore from the external drive.
