This is for a Broadcom wireless driver. If you have WinPcap installed, it uses the driver.
Also, see this about NetGroup Packet Filter Driver
OK, I think I'm OK with the Broadcom wireless driver.
But for this NetGroup Packet Filter Driver, do I need it if I don't have WinPcap installed?
Do I need WinPcap? How do I check?
Yes, I previously saw that info on bleepingcomputer. I think I got this attempt to install
the NetGroup Packet Filter Driver through malware.
Anyway, I don't have the npf.sys file in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\, so I don't think the driver is
completely installed. I think that's why I'm getting the New Hardware Found Wizard -
I think it wants me to continue with the install process by wanting to load some software or something.
But when I attempt to continue installing the NetGroup Packet Filter Driver through the wizard,
it asks for a disc. I don't have a disc of course because I didn't request this install.
How do I stop the wizard from popping up every day?
