How to remove sptd.sys from system

1. Uninstall Daemon Tools.
2. Download the SPTD standalone installer and follow these steps:
3. Double click the executable to open it
4. Click the button shown below

If the button it is grayed out, as shown in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system, and you can just close the window.

Thank you so much for the help. Its about time I get around to learning how to read these myself! But you were saying to uninstall avast for MSE's. How will MSE's compare to 3rd party dedicated anti-virus. Again thank you so much for the help!

Oh yea. Do you know any good alternatives for Deamon Tools Lite that won't cause BSOD's?

Well most of us recommend MSE as it never causes problems, and as long as you're sensible and don't download anything dodgy then it will be a suitable alternative.

As for Daemon Tools I did know but I never use such tools so I've forgot,
