    LMS cannot connect to Intel(R) MEI driver

      I started getting this warning along with a yellow exclamation mark next to System Device > Intel Mgmt Engine Interface in Device Manager..

       

      Here is the log entry from Event Viewer:

      Description:
      LMS cannot connect to Intel(R) MEI driver

       

      Here is the info from Device Manager

      This device cannot start. (Code 10)
      An invalid parameter was passed to a service or function.

       

      I had this problem before and was able to fix it by uninstalling MEI from Control Panel and then reinstalling. But it seems to be a recurring problem. this is a fresh installation using the built-in Windows Defender antivirus.

       

      System Details:

      Driver version: 9.5.10.1658

      OS: Windows 8.1

      Motherboard: Asus Z87-Pro

      Processor: i7-4770K

      Graphics: onboard intel 4600

       

      Any suggestions would be appreciated.
