View Full Version : Can't remove drives, can't uninstall

01.10.2011, 05:14
Hey. I just installed version of Daemon Tools Lite with SPTD Version 1.79 and now I can't remove drives or uninstall the program. I am running Windows Vista 32-bit with Avira, avast! and COMODO.

If I try to remove a drive the screen goes blank and the computers shuts down. Same when trying to uninstall. Before this I had an old version of Daemon from three years ago which worked flawlessly. I uninstalled it before installing this one.

Just after installing the new version this morning I was able to mount add and remove drives a couple of times without problem. But now it kills my PC.

The windows/minidump folder is empty after every crash.

Please help me!!

Did you try to disable Defense+ completely in Comodo (there is an option which requires a reboot). After reboot try to remove a virtual drive.

Yes, I did.

So... ?? You don't care that your program kills people's computers?

Download proper SPTD setup from duplexsecure.com and use it to remove SPTD driver. Then reboot and try to uninstall DAEMON Tools.

And no, our program does not kill anybody's computers. At least in case these computers don't have various security software which can have compatibility issues with SPTD driver.

Most likely the problem with your PC is related to Avast antivirus. This issue was already reported to Avast support and we cannot fix their software.
