    I'm changing from McAfee to Norton Anti-Virus and have deleted everything I can find that has 'McAfee' in it.. Norton is now installed.. But, when I try to 'start' in 'safe-mode' the computer has frozen up several times on this file: Windows\Systems32\Driver\Mup.Sy5.. Does anyone know what this file does, and can I get rid of it?

    This from a pal of mine, I'm assuming WINXP.

    Anyone??
    My search for the Mup.Sy5 went dry.

    Thanks in advance. :)

    If you Rt. click and choose propeties it may give a clue as to what it is...It also couldn't hurt to rename it and see if all still runs well
