Windows 7: BSOD due to Atikmpag.sys and infinite loop of display drivers!

There is the possibility that left behind files, or files that couldn't be deleted, are running.

Once you have used IObit (any program) you are in a world of hurt.

Many have had to do a Clean Install just to get completely away from anything IObit.

Well, I shutdown my laptop for a few hours then turned it back again in hopes that it might start running again, and it did.

Is there any other way to remove any remnants of the IObit files other than doing a clean install of windows?

It seems that SmartDefragDriver.sys is still lingering within my system. Is there a safe way of removing this?

Thanks.

P.S. - Ok, after browsing the internet for a few mins, the laptop once again decided to restart on its own, and yet again, the laptop can't get past the windows logo without restarting.

You may be able to use Revo Uninstaller to scan for any files related to IObit and remove them.

Be aware, it may include the registry too. Careful scan the list Revo provides before performing any actions. If you're not sure about the list upload a photo or screenshot of the list.

As mentioned already, I've already installed all IObit related software; it's just that the SmartDefragDriver.sys is still there and may be causing problems.

The Revo Uninstaller cannot find any programs that are related to IObit.

Ok, I found a way to delete the file.

I reinstalled a fresh set of drivers, but the problem is still existent. Every time I restart the laptop, it would just sit there on the windows logo screen then restart again.

However, if I uninstall the drivers completely and try to boot the computer up again, it works. It seems like there's an issue with the display drivers or the software itself.

I would appreciate further assistance, please.

I forgot that the functionality required for left behind removal, after the program has already been removed, is only available in the Pro version

As Layback Bear has said, your best shot is a clean install.

I've been trying desperately to find my windows CD, but it's been no use.

I guess I'll need to take this laptop to a good friend that has a win7 copy or to a repair shop.

Ok, I got my hands on a full version of win7 iso.

Is there a safe ISO program which I can use to mount and run the windows repair/installation?

Thanks.
