    If you are not familiar with the registry, you can download the following registry keys that I just created. They will remove your UpperFilters and LowerFilters that can be damaged.

    But you can also do it manually:

    1. Open the registry:

    2. Uncollapse [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}]

    Tip: Simply mark the folder “Class” and then enter “{4D36E965″ to instantly jump to the correct registry key.

    Important: Double-check that you are editing the correct registrysubkey! To do that, compare the registry keys “(Default)” and “Class”, they should be set to DVD/CD-ROM drives and CDROM.

    3. Delete the key “UpperFilters” and LowerFilters:

    If you don’t see the registry key “LowerFilters” then this method won’t help you and you should proceed to the following

    ou should try to disable integrity checks via command prompt. Disabling integrity checks means that Windows 7 will not check for digitally signed drivers.

    Run cmd.exe (command line utility) as admin:

    2. Enter the following line:
    bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

    1. Open up cmd.exe as admin:

    2. Switch to the folder where you extracted DevCon to. Simply enter:

    cd X:\path_to_devcon\i386 (replace X and path_to_devcon with your hard drive and the correct path)
