Windows 7: \SystemRoot\SysWow64\Drivers\ANGELNT.SYS has been blocked from loading

\SystemRoot\SysWow64\Drivers\ANGELNT.SYS has been blocked from loading


I have this in Event Viewer errors:

\SystemRoot\SysWow64\Drivers\ANGELNT.SYS has been blocked from loading due to incompatibility with this system. Please contact your software vendor for a compatible version of the driver.
In registry I was found this:

I have no program in computer which will use ANGEL key

Can I safely delete this registry items ?

I do NOT recommend deleting any registry keys. You may have no program, but some driver is trying to load ANGELNT.SYS.

Suggest can either
1. Tell windows to stop trying to load the driver
  • Download and run Autoruns from Sysinternals
  • Click Drivers tab.
  • Scroll down to find the line entry where ANGELNT.SYS is being loaded. Check the box. Windows will stop trying to load it.
2. Clean boot troubleshooting
See How to do clean boot troubleshooting to determine what program or service is responsible. Then you can uninstall or disable it
