First things first, I'm running Windows 7 64-bit with all the latest updates as of 11/5/2010, and have updated my SPTD to v1.74.

If you have Comodo Internet Security 5.0.X, and DT Lite 4.35.x, you know there are problems.

The easiest, fastest fix I've found that doesn't totally CRIPPLE CIS or bork DT is:

1) Install DT as usual.
2) Install CIS as usual.
3) When you launch DT (i.e. post-install reboot), you'll get the SPTD error indicating that kernel debugging must be disabled.
4) Don't freak out, just open CIS, go to Defense+, Defense+ Settings, Execution Control tab, then the Exclusions button.
5) Click Add, Browse, then browse to your DT installation folder.
6) Select DTLite.exe, then click the "->" arrow to add it to the list.
7) Click Apply, then Apply again, then OK to go to main CIS window.
8) You may need to reboot.
9) Launch DT, and things should work fine now.

The problem on a system with CIS seems to be that DT starts so early in boot process that CIS can't throw up a warning popup because the "buffer overflow attempt" has already happened, and doesn't seem to get logged either.

I hope you find this helpful, and if so, vote yes above. ;-)

Mod(s), if folks like this, maybe a "sticky" is in order. Thanks for an AWESOME tool!

Didn't work for me :(

Bye bye Daemon Tools - life's too short to mess with bust stuff.

nssc, just disable Defense+ completely (option which requires reboot).

Also why not just use Simple Driver of DT Pro which doesn't use SPTD.

Sorry it didn't work for you, nssc. Any chance you accidentally added the exception to the Virus Scanner Settings instead? This solution totally works like a champ on six workstations and three Windows 2008 servers for me so far.

Disabling Comodo's Defense+ HIPS is not such a great idea, but if that works and you're "okay" with that, then hey, great. :eek:
