Windows 7: BSOD

I would avoid any program that uses sptd.sys as it is known to cause problems in Windows 7 .... There are many free alternatives available... VirtualClone comes to mind...

Tews...Virtual Clone Drive uses SPTD. I have noticed that MagicDisc does not, however.

I apologize for my haste...I mistakenly thought ESET was Norton. Please remove that for testing purposes.

I have gone back to my original post, and highlighted the evidence of ESET.

I see...

But I don't know how to test the BSOD, because I don't know what makes it come up.. But everything seems fine now...

what is this STPD.sys thing?

But I thought daemon tool was compatable to window 7?

I guess I'll only install it when i need it then..

Thanks for the help..

(I just want to ask... does BSOD damage the computer in any way? Like does it damages hardwares? Or make window 7 not good to use? Does it have any side-effects?)

Thanks

The BSOD is actually designed to prevent damage to hardware. When the system encounters a critical error, such as a bad driver or bad hardware, it will shut itself down immediately, resulting in a BSOD.

Daemon Tools is allegedly compatible with Windows 7, but it has cause BSODs since Vista. It will run, yes, but it is not a reliable program.

SPTD.sys is a driver used by Daemon Tools and a few other programs like it.

As for testing BSODs, just go about your normal work, and if you get a BSOD, upload the new dump.

If you want, go ahead and use MagicDisc. It is similar to Daemon Tools in function, but it does not use SPTD.
