Softice / Driver Studio Hanging

  1. Hi there.

    I installed softice 4.05 on my pc.
    When i press CTRL+D to enter softice, nothing happens.
    I then started the following command: net start ntice
    but "an error occured"...
    I installed the patch but still no luck.

    I then downloaded and installed DriverStudio 3.0 because
    on the web 'they' said that it is fully Windows XP compatible.
    When I start DriverStudio/Softice, it shows the screen where it
    calls "net start ntice" but then every thing hangs!
    When I press CTRL+D it goes into SI and when I press F5 it goes
    back into Windows but windows still seems to be hanging. No mouse movement or keyboard activity. I cannot even ping this pc from another.

    I have WinXP Pro (SP2) installed
    1GB RAM
    1.4 GHz CPU (AMD Duron)
    NVidia GeForce 4 MX 420

    Hope someone can help.
