Windows 7: Boot Problems.

Boot Problems.

(SOLVED)

I really don't know how this happens, but unless I go to my setup screen while booting up and select ' disable Driver Signature Enforcement ' my computer can not start up.

If I try and boot up without disabling the DSE it'll continue as normal, but then it'll show a screen with a bar saying ' loading files ', after that it opens a screen for system restore and saying the system can't start up.

The only driver I can think of that I installed and didn't have a signature was the MotionJoy driver for the DS3. But I deleted that one already.

Help would be appreciated, it's annoying having to go and disable the DSE for it to start up.

I thought I'd throw in this second question to avoid making another thread.

This shows as having a problem of some sort. I uninstall it but refreshing the device manager just shows it again. So what is this exactly? Anyone know?

I see you have Magic ISO.
Do you have also Daemon Tools or Alcohol 120% installed by any chance?

That's what I thought. this ACQ file is a part of it and another part of Daemontools (SPTD) is known to cause trouble with Windows 7 (including BSOD's!)
(They have usually names starting with A followed by 7 random alphanumeric digits, that's why Jacee wasn't able to find anything about it.
So your best bet would be uninstall Daemontools, then remove SPTD like so:

To remove SPTD, simply download SPTD setup file "SPTDinst-v178-x64.exe" for Windows XP/2003/Vista (64-bit) [720,952 bytes] and execute it.
In dialog that appears press "Uninstall" button and then SPTD will remove itself from your Windows installation.
If you want to install it again then execute same setup and press "Install".
You can check it out here: DuplexSecure - FAQ

There are other Virtual Disk drivers that don't rely on SPTD try to use them they usually don't cause half as much trouble

I'm not actually looking to install a controller. I did have the DS3 motionjoy driver and knew that I had to disable the DSE at start up, but the problem is that even after deleting it I need to start up my computer with DSE disabled otherwise it won't boot up and goes to system restore, every single time. I'm not saying this is related to the motionjoy driver in any way though.

You're very welcome. Just remember if the problems come back to de-install the divers in question with the method outlined in my former post.

Thanks for the feedback

I notice this thread now has a ' solved ' mark next to it, but my main problem still isn't solved so perhaps that can be removed? I wouldn't want people to ignore this thread because they see the solved mark next to it, while I still very much need assistance, lol.

Without knowing, which driver is blamed to have no digital signature I can only answer general
Don't you get notified which driver lacks the digital signature?
Do you have ATI command center perhaps?
The only solution besides acquire digitally signed driver would be this:
Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider 1.3b
