  • sptd.sys doesn't load, reinstall useless

    Hello everybody,

    I’m using SPTD together with Deamon Tools Lite on my Win7 x64 machine (I’m using M$ SE as antivirus, no other antivirus or ad-/spyware detection program installed). A few days ago, dtools stopped working without me having changed anything. After some research I found out that the problem is a SPTD-error (see after description), which is recorded in my system event log (one error for every system boot). So I tried to reinstall dtools at first, without any positive result. After that I tried to install the SPTD only (newest version from DS webpage, 1.75), reboot, but same error. The installer also gives me the message, that “No SPTD version was detected”. Now I disabled SPTD via regkey, reboot, deleted sptd.sys and all regkeys, reboot, reinstalled - as recommended by digger here in the forum. Still same problem.

    So I came to the conclusion, that I have to bother you with the event log error:

    Protokollname: System

    Hopefully, you’ll be able to help me.

    Thank you very much for your efforts in advance.

    Kind regards,

    Disable debugger. If you enabled debugging in Windows, disable it with bcdedit /debug off.

      Thank you very much, Digger! You're my hero of the day! (Uh, hope that doesn't sound gay)

      Although I didn't consciously activate the kernel debugger, this was the quest's solution! Had to change to the "hidden" admin account in Win 7, start cmd.exe and enter digger's command "bcdedit /debug off". After a system reboot I was able to reinstall SPTD properly!

      Thanx again!!! :-)
