Windows 7: Boot Problems.

03 May 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I fixed the problem.

I let the system restore run again while booting up and it couldn't complete it. In the logs it said a driver called ' sfsync02.sys ' was corrupted and it was basically preventing the computer from restoring itself or booting up.

I deleted it but the problem remained. So a quick search on google revealed to me that it was an annoying StarForce driver. I deleted every driver that carried the StarForce name in it's description and my computer is now able to boot up fine without disabling the DSE.

Thx for all your help though. If anyone else ever gets this problem, delete any StarForce drivers before anything else, lol.
