Hi Team

I did a routine reboot this evening and as programmed, Hitman Pro ran a scan. Usually it turns up nothing, but tonight it flagged epstwnt.mpd.

I looked up this file on the web and found some negative comments, but I also found entries saying it was a normal file.

It sits in windows/system32/drivers and it is currently in residence!

Was this flagged in error, or is it something I should worry about?

Its not in the drivers folder on this. Looks like it maybe some kind of scsi device driver. Look in its properties, is there anything there saying shuttle?

What did hitman label it as ?
Suspicious, PUP, a named virus ?

File FileDescription: Epst Miniport Driver(Version 2.19.01)
LegalCopyright: Copyright ? Shuttle Technology.1994-1998

So if you haven't got such a device, delete the file.

If you have delete it anyway and let it reinstall.

I've deleted it, but it may have been harmless because right above epstnt.mpd was epstw2k.mpd, and since Win2k succeeded WinNT, I'm guessing that it must have been legit so Hitman was maybe having a brain-fade.

Thanks for the reassurance.
