    Anyone know what this is?
    I get an error in event viewer saying that the PfModNT service failed to start because the system failed to find the file specified. I know this file is connected to Creative sound card drivers in some way (I am using an Audigy ZS). I tried to update the drivers for the sound card but the error message still appears in the event viewer. I have checked and there is no PfModNT service in Windows XP...very strange! The PfModNT has a yellow exclamation mark in the device manager (you need to show hidden devices to see this on the list). Does anyone else have this problem or know how to get rid of this error message? Is it safe to delete PfModNT?...or at the very least disable it?

    Many thanks from Colin. :confused:
