Answers :

The file “Windows/System/Drivers/mup.sys” is not actually causing the problem. It’s the next step after mup.sys that’s causing the computer to hang. That next step consists of the OS checking the registry files for plug and play devices.
\015\012Some causes are: new or defective hardware installed, corrupted registry, (caused by virus), defective or corrupted hard drive, just to name a few.
\015\012Try removing all devices attached to the computer like printer, web cam, flash drives, etc.
\015\012If your computer has a PCI or AGP graphics card AND your motherbrd has a VGA connector, remove the video card and use the one on the motherbrd.
\015\012If the above doesn’t work, try running “CHKDSK /P” from the Windows recovery console.
