Windows 7: SPTD driver on Imgburn

SPTD driver on Imgburn

One time, I installed Alcohol 120% and decided to uninstall it using Revo's advance option. But everytime I open Imgburn, it says in a warning,

"SPTD can have a detrimental effect on drive performance."

I've done a little research and it is found to affect the drive I/O. So I want to get rid of the driver.

Upon searching, the file sptd.sys cannot be found.

I've also downloaded the file "SPTDinst-v178-x86" fromDuplexSecure - Downloads to uninstall but windows tell me, "it is not a valid application". I know I'm on x32 and the file fits but I wasn't able to execute the program.

Tried buring an .iso file using Burnaware, the process hanged on during verification part. But upon inserting the disc, an autoplay option prompted whether to execute the .exe file (btw, it is an ISO of Windows 7 ultimate with sp1)

Lastly, when burning an .iso of the original Windows 7 ultimate using Imgburn, the process can't be completed. Anytime at around 90% or so, gives me an error. Tried with different discs but to no avail.

Awesome decision, SPTD is know to cause BSODS
Go to
Driver Location

C-->Windows-->System 32-->drivers.

when you find sptd, change the ext to .bup. Its gone for all intents and purposes.
