Not able to remove device driver in safe mode

I use a desktop machine and it is been installed with Windows Xp. The problem that I face is with the device driver which is old and I am not able to remove it out. I do not know what could have caused the issue. I have experienced that my explorer is been working very slow and have no idea what could be the reason. Please help me out so that I can make the implementation to be worked and functioned as required. Also By using Show Hidden Devices in Device Manager I saw the driver is called "Microsoft TV/Video Connection". But my XP Pro (SP1) won't let me uninstall it. Please suggest me for a better solution that would then let me to make the issue get sorted well and make the changes to be done.

The issue basically relates to a threat that is been appended to the system on a particular application. This threat is causing a huge problem and may have corrupted the system file. So in order to get sort of the change it is essential and necessary that you do look out for the thing by processing the aspect which will be helpful. You need to make use of a powerful antivirus application which will sort the thing well and make the desired changes to get sort. It will be better as it will then detect the threat and then make the changes to be performed well which is required. Do check for the change and make it process as essential. I hope this will be better for you and may then be able to remove the device driver that you need to take off.
