    Everytime i try to load up my computer, just before the welcome screen i get a blue screen that says:

    "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    then a buncha crap

    Technical Information:

    ***STOP: 0x000000D1 (0xF783C094, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xF80DA75D)

    *** st3wolf.sys - Address F80DaA75D base at F80D7000, Datestamp 3eabc249"


    The only way i can get into windows is thru safe mode. Once i get in there, the culprit is an apparent Cd-rom drive that I dont even have. a Generic Stealth DVD SCSI CdRom Device. I know where it came from too. That Daemon tools program. For some reason when i installed it my computer thought i was adding more cd rom drives or somthing. It happened once before and i fixed it by deleting the program and uninstalling the non-existent cd rom drive. but its happening again and i dont even have daemon tools installed anymore. No matter if i "install" the hardware for it, uninstall it, disable it, doesnt matter, everytime i boot up the computer it runs into it and causes it not to boot to windows. Im trying to do a system restore to before i ever installed the program and right now it seems to just be hanging there, it hasnt moved in a long time. um. can i reset the computer when its in the middle of a restore? cuz i dont think this things gonna finish
