After some time I found a solution.

This error you can get, if upgrade system with installed ESET software (for example NOD32 antivirus).

You must delete this driver and reinstall ESET software after reboot.

You can use command prompt in the safe mode:

DEL /F /S /Q /A "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\epfwwfp.sys"

Thank you for sharing your knowledge! Sending some coins your way. Please post more!
