  • Problem (system hangs on startup)

    Hi all. Im having a probelm where when I install Alcohol 120 or Dameon tools 4.0.2 (their most recient version on both) the system will hang on next restart.

    My procedure goes:
    1. startup
    2. start install of either program
    3. restart of system to install SPTD
    4. finishing up of installiation of either program.

    Now at this point i can use either program and my system for that matter untill restart. Once i restart the system within 30 seconds of the welcome screen explorer locks up. If i were to have gotten Firefox open i can still browse the interent etc with no problems. But I cannot get explorer to work, If i try to kill the process in task manager it wont quit. but every other process is still responsive.

    Ive narrowed it down to the sptd drivers, as when i rename them the system works fine(but the programs dont!), but if i let them load my system goes retarded on me.

    System specs:
    amd 64 3800+
    1gb ddr ram
    a8n-sli delux motherboard
    4 harddrives (NOT IN RAID ARRAY) 2 IDE, 2 SATA 3gb/s
    2 cd/dvd burners

    Thanks in advance.

    Daemon Tools v4.0.2 is not nearly the most recent version, v4.0.8 is. Please also double check that you have Alcohol 120% v1.9.6.4719 installed.

    Download SPTD v1.38 (get it on this website's download section) and install it, reboot, then download and install the latest Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

    Does your problem persist?
