Hi - I used driver verifier yesterday,it caused a crash the first time I booted, but for some reason it didn't save any dumps. So I so I switched the save dump from automatic to minidump and ran verifier again.
It again crashed and now I don't seem to be able to get to Windows safe mode to turn off verifier.
I get a never-ending loop of "Bad Pool header" startup crash, followed by automatic repair/diagnosing, followed by the obvious "Windows did not start correctly" and a restart with two options - reset and advanced options.
Under advanced I have tried the system restore - didn't work, and command prompt - using verifier /reset had no effect (says no changes made) and it doesn't give you access to msconfig in spite of starting in the windows/system32 subdirectory.
So I have focused on selecting safe mode - tried most of them but really want the safe mode with command prompt to turn off verfier.
I have yet to be able to boot into safe mode, as rebooting will generate another stop code "Bad pool header" and automatic repair/diagnosing, same menu choices with none of them working for me.
Any advice would be great.
