I did not realize that the laptop that i was installing "NTFS for Mac OS X" on had version 10.4 installed
please see http://sourceforge.net/projects/ntfsosx/
The program has now stuffed the NTFS drivers and i need to either reinstall or if i was on my PC i would "roll back" the drivers (i don't know/think this is possible on a mac but if it was it would be great!)
Can anyone please help me or give me advise on where to get some help. it is the missus's laptop and i would like to be able to fix it.
p.s. i don't want to have to do a full reinstall if possible.
