    Okay, ks.sys is a Windows OS driver. Now OS drivers are usually too general to be of any help in diagnosing issues.

    However, in your dump the Daemon Tools driver sptd.sys was cited as not being able to load due to ky.sys. We have seen more than our fair share of issues with Daemon Tools and its drivers over the years. Most likely these two drivers are not getting along so to speak.

    Two suggestions:

    1. Update to the latest version of Daemon Tools Lite.

    2. Or uninstall completely and tell us if that brings stability.
