Windows Can't load the file AFD.SYS

by quico13 / July 30, 2009 1:40 AM PDT

My PC can't load the file afd.sys since Sunday, then I can't get any kind of connection (LAN, WLAN, 1394...) I scanned whole the PC with anti-viruses, anti malware... seems to be ok. I've used winsock fix but it doesn't change anything... I don't know what I have to do.

Please could anyone help me?

Thank you in advance!

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
