GFI Software Firewall NDIS IM Filter Miniport RRS feed

  • Question


  • I've got this error message:

    'Microsoft Kernel Debug Network Adapter - GFI Software Firewall NDIS IM Filter Miniport
    This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)

    An object ID was not found in the file.'

    When I tried to update he driver, still from the Control Panel, it said the driver was up to date.

    I couldn't find either a site to download this driver or any clue to fix the issue.
    I run Windows 8.1 64 bit on a Samsung laptop. 

    What to do?
    Thanks.

  • I don't believe it is. I think it is from www.gfi.com, and is part of their LanGuard product

  • In case somebody else encounters the same issue:

    It turned out eventually that this software belongs to Vipre. I have no idea how it got into my laptop. For instructions how completely remove it:

    I couldn't have found it out without advice from GFI which, in turn, I wouldn't have asked without your help Brian. Thank you so much.
