The file, KGyGaAvL.sys is created by the Divx video system, particularly Dr. Divx.

You can delete it, but it will be re-created every time you start Dr.
Divx.  It is related to the registration of Dr. Divx and the various
filters - it may simply be a collection of all the registered filters,
however, that is not know.  The Dr. Divx website did not have any
information on the file.

You can read in new newsgroup, microsoft.public.windowsxp.general, one
persons story of finding out what this file is.

I hope this answers your question, if not, please ask for a clairification.
