I've recently reinstalled my pc(nforce 2 based mb, win xp) and got an error during install of daemon tools v 3.2.3 and v 3.3.3(downloaded the newest version when the older failed).

During install I get to the point where the warning that the drivers are not winXP certified shall pop up, then the process services.exe peaks at 100% cpu and bogs the whole system down. I can not terminate the daemon tools install process by hitting cancel and getting the cancel installation dialog, or by ending the daemon program/process through taskman.

After a forced restart you then can't log into it in regular mode and if you do not log in the sysem will lock up after about a minute.

In safemode services.exe also peaks at 100%, though you can log in and do a system restore with waiting about 5 mins for each screen of the restore process to get updated after you have chosen an action.

I looked at the services list in safe mode and found that the only services running pointing to services.exe as an process is the plug and play and the logging services.

This system has no burner programs or other CDimage loaders installed yet.

After doing a system restore to a point before i tried to install daemon tools everything is normal again, though i cannot use your excellent program.

What log files/info can I provide to help you guys solve my problem?
