    The fact that the path is "c:\windows\system31\drivers\agdx15gt.sys" shows that it's malware and/or just not supposed to be there. By default, Windows has c:\windows\system and c:\windows\system32 directories. I would delete the system31 directory and all it's contents (assuming that windows\system and windows\system32 still exist!). IE, it may have renamed them. Don't forget to empty your recycle bin or even better, hold down the shift key when you delete it. Then reboot and see if it's recreated.

    Are you sure you followed all the instructions here, beginning to end? http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html
