    critical system driver hdhroftl.sys


    On my laptop, I ran my recovery CD a couple times without luck. Safe mode and last known configuration do not work either.

    The startup screen says I'm missing system32/drivers/hdhroftl.sys


    I can't find this file on my desktop PC and google turns up no results - it sounds like a file which I don't really need but maybe a virus or spyware changed my system config. Is there anything I can do?

    Hello cre and welcome to the forums

    Try booting from the Vista disc and then doing a system restore to before you started experiencing the problem.

    right click on the folder drivers then select "restore a prevous version" select an earlier version of the folder and open and select the file then right click and "restore" or "copy" to a safe place to work with.

    i would love to know how this turns out, sounding very familiar, however i can't do anything with the replies here, they didn't work, don't have recovery or full os disk.

    hey pug, i couldn't even get into windows to restore and i didn't have a disk, so i just reinstalled xp instead of keeping my vista.

    restore to last working configuration didn't work either from the boot menu

    i still haven't found out what hdhroftl.sys is and where i got it from.
