MpKsl drivers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Why does MSE litter the system with dozens of "Non-plug and play drivers" named MpKsl********? At this juncture, I have 22 of them. I thought they were supposed to be deleted when a new set of definition files get downloaded.

    Thanks,

    Leighton

  • Hi,

     

    Based on my research, after new define update, the old MpKsl service would be deleted and a new MpKsl would be started.

     

    You could try to reinstall Microsoft Security Essential to check how it works.

     

    If this issue still exists, I suggest you could post our corresponding forum which focuses on Microsoft Security Essential issue:

     

    Microsoft Security Essentials

     

    Hope it helps.

  • Just 26? Let me show just the half of the list: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/607/mpksl.jpg/

    And the list keeps going

    Is there any way to delete these without having to delete each entry manually?

  • ¿Por qué la basura MSE el sistema con docenas de "Controladores que no son plug and play" llamado MpKsl ********? En este momento, tengo 22 de ellos. Pensé que se suponía que debían ser eliminados cuando un nuevo conjunto de archivos de definición se descargan.

    Gracias,
