About the "little sods", is that an acronym or a colloquialism? That asked...
I've Manually deleted C:\Windows\System32\drivers\
3. sbfw.sys (Sunbelt Personal FireWall Driver)
5. sbhips.sys (Sunbelt Host Legacy Intrusion Prevention System)
On the earlier request (unchecking Sunbelt drivers in AutoRuns) I immediately (on reboot) lost my wireless internet connection. Adding back one at a time I was able to get it back with only one of them loading.
That one is SBFWIMCLMP.sys.
Without it I can't get a wifi connection at all. It does see the SSID but won't connect. Both SBFWIMCLMP.sys and another driver, SBFWIMCL.sys are labeled "Sunbelt Personal Firewall NDIS Intermediate Drivers". Why they work without #3 above (sbfw.sys Sunbelt Personal FireWall Driver) is unknown to me.
SystemLook still finds the following file in C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\
along with a fairly large number of sbfwin*.* files and subdirectories.
- I had one BSOD immediately after unchecking the Sunbelt drivers the first time in AutoRuns. After that there were seven clean reboots and the shutdowns are taking less time.
FROM ANOTHER COMPUTER:
- Just now the eighth shutdown produced another BSOD. I'm on another computer and will attach the minidump file in the morning.
- I'll add back those two files one at a time until I have my wifi connection back, but it'll have to wait until tomorrow afternoon. Gotta make up for time lost on this today!
Thanks for the persistence. I'm learning a lot.
