18.11.2002, 11:07
System Windows XP pro
all security pack installed

Burning software: nero, clonecd, cdmate

During installation of daemon tools, some bug restart my pc, but now I have a virtual dvd-cdrom stealth drive installed, but i can use it.

I have reinstalled daeman tool (last version);
INSERT INTO `portal_posts_text` VALUES
all is clean, but this drive is still in my system.

I try to desactivate it, and then remove it from system ,but that produce security crash in xp.

This drive is not reconize by daemon like a virtual drive.

How can I remove it?

Thanks for your help

If you installed Daemon then uninstall it again and reboot. You should not do any modifcations manually - all virtual drive should disappear.

Then go to device manage and remove virtual SCSI controller that you may have from previous version.

As i say you in my first post, removing manually the drive crash the system.

Last night, first i remove daemon v3.23 then reinstall it, but this crash the system.
When I reboot, I have a new stealth drive (2 stealth drive now);
INSERT INTO `portal_posts_text` VALUES
but daemon was not install, so I reinstall it, and it say me that installation was not complete, and I choose to continu the old installation, and go well.
Then I remove it again, and then the second stealth desappears.

So I think the first time I install daemon and the system crash, the installation was not complete. I think it was v3.19.
But I have remove this version, and install v3.23.
May be the v3.19 is still partially installed, and that why I can't remove it

What can I do

PS Now my cdrom can't read, and I have trouble with INCD, when I eject RWcd that crash the system

remove/disable incd and any other antivrius/firewall software, reboot
then uninstall d-tools (both versions)
remove stealth dvd-rom from device manager
report results here

I had the stealth drive probem aswell, which was exspecially annoying since it simply replaced an existing network drive.
Trying to remove it via the daemon-manager with disable drives and via the windows explorer always lead to a crash.
Removing via the device manager did work though.

Maybe you misunderstood the suggetsion sboot?
Maybe someone can show you how to access the device manager in XP.

Hope it helps!

I have tried several virtual CD drives software (VirtualCD, FantomCD & DTools). Each one I encountered reboot troubles !

Where did that bug come ?

If none of these softs work on your PC I strongly suggest you REINSTALL your OS from scratch!!
