Hi, I'm currently in Geek uni and looking at a FRST log file from a win7 pro 64 pc and under system errors is listed
The WinPcap Packet Driver (NPF) service failed to start due to the following error:
I do not believe this is a malware issue, but guessing it might be yet another lingering relic from my trial of "Private Internet Access" a vpn service which has left mess everywhere.
A little research has revealed there is 3 entries for winpcap in the registry under services/npf, and the path shown is Windows/sys32/drivers/npf.sys. That file does not exist on 3 of my win7 pc's. Im now assuming when I uninstalled (haha) private internet access it took the file out without taking the corresponding regfiles.
Does my theory stand up? and thanks
PS: this is not a practice log question of any sort.
