I installed Daemon Tools this afternoon and the program told me to reboot. I did reboot, but now, I can't start up my computer normally. It freezes at the Welcome Screen, and I can't go on any further. I can go on Safe Mode however. Is it because my computer used to be Windows Vista but was then updated to Windows 7 and this upgraded system isn't compatible with Daemon Tools? I read online that it's the SPTD.sys that's wrecking my computer, but I can't remove it. That is, I can't remove its registry keys. Can anyone help? Thanks!

I just went back and uninstalled another program, and now I can see the desktop. However, the computer freezes right after the desktop comes up. I also removed the SPTD registry keys, but it's still not working.

I don't know if you're still haveing troubles, but if you are, I suggest uninstalling Daemon Tools. I use to have it, but have had no use for it for years. Since your problem started with it's installation, removing it should help. :thumbsup:
