    GPU-Z 0.3.3 hangs and locks the computer.
    GPU-Z 0.2.1 gives the error message:
    "Could not start driver. The system cannot find the file specified."

    What can I do?

    XP Pro SP2 in English with all updates, ATI Radeon X300/X550/1050 Series.

    Are you using any Kaspersky products?

    Not sure if it is exactly the same, but here is the fix for Kaspersky Internet Secuirty 8 (2009)

    KIS 7 is much the same, otherwise, download the latest update from their site, your KIS7 key will continue to work on KIS2009, (its what I did :) )

    Thanks for a very quick reply. It worked.
    In Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0:
    Click on the left side in main window: "Settings"
    Click to the left in the opened window:
    "Threats and exclusions" -> "Trusted zone" -> "Add"
    Then browse to and add ...\GPU-Z.0.3.3.exe
    Click "Edit" and mark all boxes.

    Kind regards
