Nice f/up, thanks! Esp. the link is most informative.
I am let us say, reactionary, have not got past Windows 2000
and would not know what you provided.
If I am understanding the "readme", tcpip6.sys is expected
to be passing packets. Howsomeever, SpamPop was not
"seeing" that previously, and it begs the question why
things are different now... Like, is there a chance that
the driver "fingerprint" was altered by an unrecognized
virus? What harm would come of submitting a copy to
SARC for investigation/ confirmation that it is "clean"?
In my experience, my suspicions pay off as often as not
under investigation. I don't endorse reckless paranoia,
but it also isn't healthy to not be a little paranoid where
there are concerns for malicious code: there is an
awful lot of it "out there", and it seems to me that
tcpip6.sys could be targeted for "attack".
"what, me worry?"
