My computer boots normally,but, if I try to boot into safe mood, it asks me if I want to skip loading SPTD.sys. Whether I skip it or not, the system just freezes there and nothing happens.. What can be the problem?? :)

SPTD.sys is a driver associated with DAEMON Tools. A lot of people find problems with it.

Try removing the driver:

1. Start > Run > type devmgmt.msc
2. In the View tab > Show hidden devices
3. In the tree find Non-plug and play drivers > Choose "sptd" > right click and Uninstall

When uninstalled, reboot into safe mode and see if you have any luck.

Hope this helps -
Jason
