What are hipscore.inf Error Messages?


Hipscore.inf Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Errors

There are a number of reasons why you could be encountering issues with hipscore.inf. Most of the issues concerning INF files involve Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) errors. These types of hipscore.inf errors can be cause by hardware problems, outdated firmware, corrupt drivers, or other software-related (eg. McAfee Total Protection update) issues. Some of these errors include:

It's Critical to Resolve Blue Screen of Death Errors

In the majority of cases, you will encounter hipscore.inf BSOD errors after you've installed new hardware, software (McAfee Total Protection), or performed a failed Windows Update. In other cases, software corruption caused by a malware infection can lead to hipscore.inf Blue Screen of Death errors. Therefore, it's critical to make sure your anti-virus is kept up-to-date and scanning regularly.


GEEK TIP : As a rule of thumb, it's always a good idea to create a Windows "Snapshot" backup / System Restore Point before making any hardware or software changes to your computer. That way, it's very easy to restore your system in the unfortunate event you encounter a hipscore.inf Blue Screen of Death error after recent changes.



How to Fix hipscore.inf Errors in 3 Steps (Time to complete: ~5-15 minutes)

If you're encountering one of the error messages above, follow these troubleshooting steps to resolve your hipscore.inf issue. These troubleshooting steps are listed in the recommended order of execution.


Step 1: Restore your PC back to the latest restore point, "snapshot", or backup image before error occurred.

To begin System Restore (Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 10):

  1. Hit the Windows Start button
  2. When you see the search box, type "System Restore" and press "ENTER".
  3. In the search results, find and click System Restore.
  4. Please enter the administrator password (if applicable / prompted).
  5. Follow the steps in the System Restore Wizard to choose a relevant restore point.
  6. Restore your computer to that backup image.

If the Step 1 fails to resolve the hipscore.inf error, please proceed to the Step 2 below.

Step 2: If recently installed McAfee Total Protection (or related software), uninstall then try reinstalling McAfee Total Protection software.

You can uninstall McAfee Total Protection software by following these instructions (Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 10):

  1. Hit the Windows Start button
  2. In the search box, type "Uninstall" and press "ENTER".
  3. In the search results, find and click "Add or Remove Programs"

Step 3: Perform a Windows Update.

When the first two steps haven't solved your issue, it might be a good idea to run Windows Update. Many hipscore.inf error messages that are encountered can be contributed to an outdated Windows Operating System. To run Windows Update, please follow these easy steps:

  1. Hit the Windows Start button
  2. In the search box, type "Update" and press "ENTER".
  3. In the Windows Update dialog box, click "Check for Updates" (or similar button depending on your Windows version)
  4. If updates are available for download, click "Install Updates".
  5. After the update is completed, restart your PC.

If Windows Update failed to resolve the hipscore.inf error message, please proceed to next step. Please note that this final step is recommended for advanced PC users only.



If Those Steps Fail: Download and Replace Your hipscore.inf File (Caution: Advanced)

Download hipscore.inf Files (Malware-Tested 100% Clean)


CAUTION : We strongly advise against downloading and copying hipscore.inf to your appropriate Windows system directory. McAfee, Inc. typically does not release McAfee Total Protection INF files for download because they are bundled together inside of a software installer. The installer's task is to ensure that all correct verifications have been made before installing and placing hipscore.inf and all other INF files for McAfee Total Protection. An incorrectly installed INF file may create system instability and could cause your program or operating system to stop functioning altogether. Proceed with caution.
