Was going to start a new topic but found this one.
Im having issues with the same driver in my Device Manager. I noticed today after trying to install Windows Update (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2862330
) and it kept failing. I opened my Device Manager to see that the Avast NDIS Filter Miniport Driver was not running. None of the scenarios meet the criteria for the update error; included in the notepad below.
Here are the details of the driver as to why its not running: "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)"
I just had TwinHeadedEagle go through the reports in finding malware on my system and he reported it clean here: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=137691.msg1006742#msg1006742
Any ideas on why the driver is disabled? Do they have a new Avast Cleaner; maybe the one I had didn't clean the old Avast out when I updated.
EDIT: Forgot attachment, spelling, detail
