Im a newbie to the board.

I started having a problem with my dell m1330 laptop with windows vista all up to date. Whenever i turn of my laptop it wont boot it takes me to a grey screen with a white mouse and starts running startup repair and it fails and when click for more information it says that there is a corrupt driver mfehidk.sys. If i dont click for more information the cumputer just shuts down. I did try to do a system restore and two failed and one went through to go back five days. But it didnt help anything. I dont know where to go from here. I have mcafee internet security 2010 installed. I had the same problem a week ago but i just restarted it and windows startup fixed the problem. I have done some googling and found its an issue with mcafee and maybe has to do with a backup assitant, but nothing says on how to repair the driver or remove it. I did do a virus scan and cleaned all my internet files and adware removal and defrag about two days ago.

Did a search of this filename and it pertains to that. The recommended fix states to completely remove McAfee and then reinstall it. It has worked for some people and for others it didnt work.
