  • sptd crash windows

    I posted my problem on DT boards but they think I should post here:

    I tried to install deamon tools, but after reboot the windows wont load. So i went in windows advanced startup and chosen to load last known good configuration.

    After looking on the net I think I have a sptd problem.

    So I tried to delete it.
    I deleted DT and alcohol 120.
    Tried to delete in registry>services>sptd - I change start from 0 to 4 -> windows cant load.
    Tried to delete sptd.sys -> windows wont load -> needs windows repair O.o ...

    I downloaded sptd installer and it doesn't find sptd driver.
    If I go to device manager -> sptd:
    This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed. (Code 24)

    Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.

    So what to do now?

    Microsoft Windows XP Pro
    DAEMON Tools Lite v4.35.5
    SPTD installed with DT.

    Un install any security software you have if you want to run SPTD...
    Apparently SPTD can't be run on a secure computer.

      Not true, only a few security programs are causing problems (Jetico, F-Secure, Spyware Doctor (and its free version) and ZoneAlarm).

        So what security software are you running Blaz? I've tried many and all interfere or crash with SPTD.

          KIS 2010 and Eset Smart Security have no problems with SPTD (ESS on my XP SP3 machine and KIS 2010 on my Win 7 x64).
          With latest F-Secure updates it doesn't have any problem with SPTD anymore on my test machine.
          Bitdefender also showed no problem on my test machine, same for Dr. Web.
