Disable Verifier Outside Windows (Vista \/ 7 \/ 8\/ 10)\n\nThe following tutorial uses advanced methods for troubleshooting Verifier conflicts with Windows. If you are not comfortable manually changing registry settings, please do not continue.\n\n\nFirst, you will need to access the Windows Recovery Options.\n\n\nOnce you have access to the Windows Recovery Options screen, choose the command prompt.\n\n\nDetermine which drive contains your Windows Directory by checking the directory structure for all drives. The example below checks the c:, d:, and e: drives, but you may need to check others. The drive will not be the x: drive since the x: drive is a virtual drive in memory that contains the Windows recovery files.\n\ndir c:\ndir d:\ndir e:\n\n\nIn the example below, the drive containing the Windows directory is the c: drive.\n\n\n\nNOTE: In the following steps, the drive letter containing Windows is c:, but yours may be different\n\n\nThe registry loaded in the recovery options environment contains only registry entries for allowing the recovery options to run. It does not include the registry information installed on the system.\n\nYou must first load the registry from your system into the recovery options registry before you can disable Verifier through the Windows recovery options registry editor.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nOnce the registry is loaded as TempSys, run the registry editor using the following command.\n\n\n\n\n\nBrowse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\TempSys\\Select and then read the Current DWORD entry. The DWORD entry will have a number that corresponds to the ControlSet that is in use when the system is loaded.\n\nIn the below example, the DWORD number is 3, so ControlSet003 contains the Verifier information when Windows is loaded.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nNavigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\TempSys\\ControlSet00#\\Control\\Session Manager\\Memory Management\\ where # is the number found in the Select DWORD entry.\n\nDelete the VerifyDrivers and VerifyDriverLevel keys.\n\nIf you do not find the keys in the ControlSet you navigated through, check the other ControlSet keys in the same manner\n\nExit the Windows Registry Editor.\n\n\nUnload the registry key for TempSys.\n\n\n\n\n\nExit the Command Prompt.\n\n\n\n\n\nThen Restart your computer.
