I experienced an issue as follows. Did anyone experience similar?
I have a wireless lasermouse TRUST MI-7700R. That mouse needs a driver called KMWDFILTER.SYS. This driver has been running on my PC for many months, along with Zonealarm.
I uninstalled Zonealarm and installed COMODO FIREWALL Pro 184.108.40.2068 after deactivating my AVG8 and Spybot-SD Resident. The install did not give any error messages.
At the end of the process, it requests to boot the PC again, which I did.
After my XP Home started and I logged to my account, I got a BSOD specifying KMWDFILTER.SYS
I rebooted and started Windows in safe mode, deleted the three files called KMWDFILTER.SYS (2 in Program files, 1 in driver DB) and rebooted (this remedy is mentioned on another forum).
Now everything looks OK, but I cannot use my wireless mouse.
I reinstalled the mouse driver. Still the mouse does not function, but I don’t get the BSOD after booting either!
Sorry, I was too quick in stating that I did not get the BSOD’s anymore after the reinstall of the driver. I DID after a reboot!
The msg in the BSOD was:
STOP 0X0000008E (0XC0000005, 0XBAB81D10, 0XA93C1BC0, 0X00000000)
KMWDFILTER.SYS Address BAB81D10 base at BAB80000 DATESTAMP 460b63fe
After I rebooted in SAFE mode my wireless mouse functioned again.
Then in SAFE mode I removed KMWDFILTER.SYS from C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers and KMWDSRV.EXE-078331FC.pf from C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch.
After reboot, no BSOD anymore, but of course my mouse does not function anymore.
End of update
