Coincidence

Hey, I was just asking about this yesterday. The suggestions didn't really help, but I looked on google. Search for DriverLINX on google. I found a file and that is what you need. The link is here:

http://www.geocities.com/dinceraydin/python/indexeng.html

To solve the problem, go to regedit, search for DriverLINX, it will the key with something like /?/windows/system32/drivers/blah.sys. You need to unzip the file (the name of which is in your registry key that you just found) and just put it in that directory. That should be it. I have no idea what the files does tho...tell me if this solves your problem, it took me forever to try to solve this problem.

Hmmm...... Odd! I just today found that I have the same error? It only started 10 days ago. What's going on here?? This is Virus/spyware like stuff?? Or a programs litter.

I find it in 3 keys in the registry:
HKLM\System\Control Set001\Services\DLPORTIO
HKLM\System\Control Set002\Services\DLPORTIO
HKLM\System\Control Set\Services\DLPORTIO

When I look for the folder under C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\DLPORTIO The folder is not there?

NOTE** thankugod I could not access your site. Could you dsend me the .dll? decon@yahoo.com

Thanks for the info and the .dll

Follow up!

I deleted the 3 keys in the registry, actually 2:
HKLM\System\Control Set001\Services\DLPORTIO
HKLM\System\Control Set002\Services\DLPORTIO

Once the above 2 were deleted this one disappeared:

HKLM\System\Control Set\Services\DLPORTIO

End of problem and end of error.

I strongly suspect that some software I installed littered the registry with these keys.

FYI, RegCleaner, which I have used for years did not detect these.

Good luck all, Remember set a restore point and export these 3 keys FIRST. Better safe than sorry.

Regards,
Decon
