Hello,

don't know if I post this in the right section, but my firewall (SPF Pro 5.5.2525) always shows me this file trying to connect... if I block it, everything is running as usual, no apps yielling...
So, my question is, does someone know what is this file for ?

( It's located in c:\windows\system32\DRIVERS, and is named in SPF "NDIS user mode I/O Driver")

I'd like to prevent from loading at startup if it's really useless... ;)

Thank you Enyo !
I did previously perform a google search and found this thread in this forum but didn't see the info you give at that time...

Anyway, you summed it up right, I disabled this service, it didn't desappear fron SPF Pro but no activity from it anymore, until I started my pc this morning: no more ndiuio.sys showing :)
It was indeed useless, at least for me, everything's running ok so far :)

Thanx again Enyo !

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
