View Full Version : Daemon Tools Crashes my computer!

I can't deal with this, I need help now. I have some seriouos work that's due in the next 48 hours, so don't hesitate to reply if you know the answer to this please!

I installed Daemon Tools today, and during the installation, it crashed Vista. I'm using Vista Home Premium. I restart it, in safe mode, and the second I get there, it crashes again. When I start windows normally, it takes a few seconds to crash, around thirty. I can't fix this, and it's really important!!!

Can you please inform me on how to fix this? It says it's looking for a driver or something, then after that comes up, it crashes. I don't know which process it is, so I can't terminate it, and I don't have the time to go through each one. It said windows blocked it due to compatability issues, but it still manages to crash.

Are you installing latest DT Lite 4.12.1 or latest DT Pro 4.12.0220?

Also could you post the latest minidump (windows\minidump).

For some weird reason i went to load something with DT Lite and it made all of my applications and files, even movies only open with DT. Like my calculator and everything. Every time I try to open something, it says error in command line. Any help would be appreciated since i really don't get the chance to have my laptop online.... currently deployed in Afghanistan.

It seems you have associated DAEMON Tools Lite with *.lnk file extension.

Please look at this article of MS knowledgebase for solution Restoring .lnk file associations (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/172053/en-us)
