My XPPro computer has, on odd occasions, been dumping me out of the Windows Welcome screen to a Blue Screen of Death, with cryptic messages to restart the computer because of driver conflict related to the display. I reinstalled my video driver, updated it, and deinstalled my NEC 3090 software. Also, I tried deinstalling a trial download of ADJUST monitor callibration software, which I had tried before getting the Spectraview II software. I also have the i-One calibration software on the computer, as well as the HP-Advanced Profiling Solution (HP-APS), which I use for profiling my printer. I reinstalled SpectraViewII, and kept getting messages from my HP calibration software saying my monitor profile was outdated.
I had to reprofile my monitor with the HP-APS software in order to reach its option of saying never, never to remind me that the profile is out of date. I did the same with the i-One profiler, and then did another calibration and profile with SpectraViewII. I continued to get the Blue Screen of Death, randomly, on boot-up.
Today, I went into the Startup folder and was shocked to see icons for the following: ADJUST Monitor Calibration Loader, LUT Loader, Logo Calibration Loader, Profile Reminder (i1), HP-Profile Reminder, and SpectraViewII Gamma Loader!
Am I right in thinking that with all of these programs trying to load profiles on boot-up, that this may have been causing the lethal conflicts? I removed all but the SpectraviewII Gamma Loader, but I don't even know what program the LUT Loader is connected to.
I also attempted to uninstall the ADJUST profiler and Windows can't do it: it says a file is missing.
I am also concerned that somehow there was interference with SpectraView's function of linearizing the videocard's LUT after calibration and profiling the NEC 3090, and/or that two or more monitor profiles were being loaded, much as would sometimes happen when somebody inadvertently had the old Adobe Gamma Loader still active along with a real monitor profile.
Any thoughts on these things?
