Corrupted system file?

Every time I install new hardware/drivers or change driver settings I get a blue-screen error something like 'exception in module viadsk.mpd' followed by an infinite number of blue-screen fatal exceptions. What is viadsk.mpd and how do I fix it?
I've already tried 'refreshing' windows (ie. running setup) but all that did was annoyingly reset some of my windows options like virtual memory to default!
This problem doesn't seem to stop me from actually installing stuff (although life hasnt exactly been trouble free lately...) but it is dead annoying and very worrying.
