Trouble with Virusscanner!

  raffy 15:36 17 Jul 2003

Yesterday morning my printer messed up my System. After a few errormessages I uninstalled the printerdriver. Now I can't deepscan my system. Whenever it comes to C:Windows\option\install\driver5.cap my Virussanner stops. I'm using Ontrack's Systemsuit 4. I also tried MCFEE's Freescan and MICRO's Onlinescan, but the same happen ! I'm using WindowsME. Could anyone give me some Addvice please.

C:Windows\option\install\driver5.cap delete this file then, see what happens.

Well, I think that is not a good advice , If I delete that file I must format my HDD again. But anyway thank you for your suggestion.

Yes eandomly deleteing files isn't generally a good idea.

However is the file called driver5.CAB??

Try renaming it to driver5.old and then see what happens.

You can rename back it after.

Yes, it's Driver5cap. Well, I'll try that!

Thanks for your help!

Format HDD again!

You should be Ok deleting this file, but if it causes a reformat, which I did not know, you need to disable the driver from starting up in the first place, then delete.
