I've got a Realtek 10/100 card that seems to have stop working, So I took it out and it won't stop detecting and installing even if it is out.

You sure this isn't from something else? Like an Onboard NIC??

If you've removed a physical card, and replaced it, boot Windows into Safe Mode, then go into Device Manager, and see if it's in there. If so, delete it.

If an onboard NIC went south, and you've replaced it, then you'll need to get into the BIOS and disable it there. Hint: Check "Integrated Peripherials."

Yeah this is a XP system, I've tried to get rid of it but keeps on detecting, I'll try the safemode removal real quick and see what happens

alright I went into safe mode and removed it, refreshed the Device Manager screen and it detected ethernet controler even with no possible ethernet card anywhere, No onboard ethernet also.

Maybe if I reset my ESCD in the bios I bet it's holding on to the ghost..

At this point I'd look into reinstalling WindowsXP, if the previously mentioned solutions weren't helpful.
