Win 7 Stalling On Viaagp.sys Driver

» Win 7 was stalling when booting (taking between 7-10 mins to boot). So I ran microsoft essentials and it was stalling on viaagp.sys file.


Best Answer

» Viaagp.sys is Microsoft Windows VIA AGP driver that should be located in the C:\Windows\System32\drivers directory.If you've recently been getting errors with viaagp.sys it's recommend you unisntall and/or re-install any programs recently that may have generated this error. If this does not resolve your issue or you have not installed any program recently try recovering Windows back to a recent backup of Windows.

Unfortunately, some of the undetected spyware(Backdoor:Win32/Bifrose.AE) may be responsible for the viaagp.sys errors occurring on your computer by placing a file with the similar name. Moreover, an uninstall of a program that has been performed incorrectly or incompletely may also lead to the viaagp.sys errors, which can be a blue screen of death(BSOD)

Blue screen of death is related to the driver files, namely .sys file. Files with the .sys extension are Windows System Files. The .sys file extension was developed by the Microsoft Corporation. Files with the .sys file extension are used by the Microsoft DOS and Windows operating systems to store data about the device drivers, settings and other Windows system information on a computer.

In case of virus infection, you can use DLL Suite to clean the aftermath caused by the virus removal, and fix the associated dll errors. It can also be use for free download of any missing dll files for your convenience. It contains a large dll file library, which is safe and clean with the professional protection against any malicious attack.
