Unsigned Driver

Recommended Posts

Lets get a log from FRST, and see if it shows the cause of the issue. Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) from one of the following links, and save it to your Desktop (please note that some web browsers will automatically save all downloads in your Downloads folder, so in those cases please move the download to your desktop):

 

For 32-bit (x86) editions of Windows:

 

For 64-bit (x64) editions of Windows:

 

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your computer. If you are not sure which version applies to your computer, then download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your computer, and that will be the right version.

  1. Run the FRST download that works on your computer (for Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 please right-click on the file and select Run as administrator).

  2. When the tool opens click Yes for the disclaimer in order to continue using FRST.

  3. Press the Scan button.

  4. When the scan is done, it will save a log as a Text Document named FRST in the same place the tool was run from (if you had saved FRST on your desktop, then the FRST log will be saved there).

  5. Please attach the FRST log file to a reply using the More Reply Options button to the lower-right of where you type in your reply to access the attachment controls.

  6. The first time the FRST tool is run it saves another log (a Text Document named Addition - also located in the same place as the FRST tool was run from). Please also attach that log file along with the FRST log file to your reply.

No, the driver is only needed for certain scanning and threat removal functions. It's not essential for any of the functionality of EEK, and the default scan options do not even require it.

There were a lot of errors in the Event Logs, however the one I would be the most concerned about is the following:

Error: (02/22/2017 11:08:40 AM) (Source: disk) (EventID: 11) (User: )
Description: The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk1\DR1.

This could indicate a problem with the hard drive, or the hard drive controller. It could also be the cause of the problem, although it is difficult to be certain.

The only things installed on the computer that could (in theory) cause any problems with driver registration would be GlassWire and Zemena Anti-Malware. Since GlassWire appears to have some sort of HIPS I would guess that it is the most likely of the two to potentially cause problems.

The error was caused by me having to use my backups I believe.but I will keep an eye on it.System seems fine now,but Mcafee uninstall caused some weird behavior.I did install Windows Firewall Control and have it on low until I can figure it out.I also tried to use Unlocker to delete leftover system old folders and it somehow took out some things that were needed in Windows.Have no idea and may contact Iobit.Too much going on I learn the hard way that's for sure.

It's possible that it needs to be run a second time to remove everything. Sometimes tools like that aren't able to remove everything the first time, and require a second or even a third run (followed by reboots of course) to finally get everything.
