    Whatever it is it's not a driver, at least not one you want to keep. Run a Full Scan with McAfee (get the latest updates first) and then a Full Scan with Malwarebytes Free. Something's created that file and is trying to activate it, and if it's being blocked it may be malware.

     

    When you've done the scans get CCleaner and clean up your disk. Make sure all the boxes are checked for those applications you want to be cleaned up, but leave the boxes for Windows log files and McAfee unchecked.
