    Hi there,

    Lately i got a PC game from my local library named ''the settlers rise of an empire''. I installed it but i could not make it work. So i uninstalled it again.

    I found out later that it was a old game made for windows xp and windows vista.
    Then the next time i start up my computer there pop up a message from the toolbar that say there is a driver installed on my computer that makes windows unstable and it will be deactivated.

    When i click on the message there pop up a little box. In this box i can see the driver name wich is Tages Protection, and i can search after a solution online.

    :confused:

    How do i remove this driver?

    Sincerly,

    Smartmoss

    I have downloaded their setup up tool. ( A tool that can install /uninstall) The first time i used it the tool said the drivers need to be installed. Then i cliced no. Then it offers me to uninstall the drivers but it gives a error. Now i dont offers me to uninstall. Should i try to install the driver (Then the driver is blocked because it makes windows unstable). And then try to uninstall it after?

    Found this on another forum.. Do this sound as a good idea?

    ''I went thru this mess just now with this damn Tages driver.

    IT was installed by Witcher game I had laying on shelf for a couple years, unopened.

    In the end I ended up throwing the Witcher DVD and package in the garbage due to issues with the install
    I will not bother to relate here as it is offtopic.

    On topic. I found this info in another forum:
    .......................
    I think you have to uninstall the tages drivers from your windows 7 operating system. You have to follows the steps which are given below. I hope this will help for the same problem what you are facing on your computer system.

    Reboot your windows operating system and push F8 key to enter the safe mode.
    Go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers and locate atjsgt.sys and linsgt.sys
    Delete the two system files and the tages drivers will be removed from the computer system.
    .................................

    In my Windows7 system the files were not in use so no safe mode nonsense was needed. I just navigated
    to the directory and deleted the files in question.
    The drivers were not in use because Win 7 would not load them anyway.

    I refused to go to that Tages criminal outfit to install their 'updated' garbage in order to remove the old garbage.
    Lord knows what infestation comes with the install. I don't trust them.
    After my dealings with the Witcher mess I will have nothing to do with that gaming company again.

    Garbage like this makes Steam more attractive.''

    Why not just do a system restore to a date before you installed the game?
