    Device not working properly.

    I not sure if this thread is posted in the right place. I received this error from TuneUp Utilities that a device is not working properly. The device is shown as
    "MpKs17b24044a". Device type Non-Plug and Play driver. I have no idea what this refers to. All I have done about 4 days ago is to connect a RCT Line-
    Interactive UPS-650VA. Has anyone an idea of what this is all about and come up with a solution?
    Have attached some error messages.

    Remove the UPS and see if the error goes away. If so, go to the vendor web site and see if it has a driver for it.

    MpKs*.sys is a Microsoft Security Essentials filter/driver, sounds like you may need to uninstall/reinstall it, any other problems, glitches in Windows?

    No worries Jerry, I wasted hours some 2-3 years ago trying to track that driver source down

    I was working on a notebook a couple of days ago that had problems with the MfPsl*.sys; I have a feeling that an old A/V driver remnant (Kaspersky) may have played a part, if you've previously had other A/Vs or firewalls installed, check that they've been fully uninstalled, uninstallers linked from here: http://www.carrona.org/avuninst.html
