  1. Windows 2000 Professional Freezing at startup

    When the MS Windows logo appears and the blue and white bars run along the bottom of the screen, it freezes at one point. I have loaded the minidump files into a zip file because i don't know which one is newest. By the way, I am posting from a different computer, not the broken one. I am almost sure the problem is caused by software called Daemon Tools.

    on boot try the F8 key could get you to safe mode and uninstall the crap
    if you have W2K install disc as last resort use this to repair the OS

    The problem is, its installed several drivers that I can't find. I uninstalled it normally, and deleted one of its drivers, but I was hoping someone could anyalyze the minidump to see what driver is causing the conflic.
