I found this out the hard way, but fixed my problem myself, being an advanced techie. I installed Race Driver 3 under Windows 7 64bit on my P55IM, and ever since it asked for a reboot and tried to install a StarForce driver, the system wouldn’t start on it’s own. The Starting Windows screen comes up and sticks for ages, and the Windows animation doesn’t appear, instead the machine boots straight into Startup Recovery.

This finds a problem, but cannot fix it, so the system will still NOT START. Here’s how to fix it:

1. Turn off your computer, and as Windows is about to start, hit F8

2. Hit enter on “Disable Driver Signature Enforcement”. The system will now start normally, but slower than usual, and you might get a warning from Windows that the StarForce driver is corrupt and/or incompatible, and it has been disabled. This won’t fix it permanently, we now need to delete the driver.

3. Open a command prompt, and one by one, right click the window and paste each of these lines in, hitting Enter after each one. You won’t get confirmation, it’ll just go to a new prompt:

DEL c:\windows\system32\drivers\sfsync03.sys
DEL c:\windows\system32\drivers\sfdrv01.sys
DEL c:\windows\system32\drivers\sfhlp02.sys

4. Uninstall Race Driver 3. You can do this anytime, either before or after this step, but the game doesn’t work anyway without the driver, and doesn’t uninstall it as part of the uninstall routine, so do it anyway round.

5. Reboot, and you’re done!

    If you were such an advanced techie you would have used the NO CD CRACK and be playing the game right now. Also use this to remove starforce (link removed, I don’t allow links from commenters for security reasons, read my RULES!) or remove them in Device manager (possibly hidden).

    If you want to solve this problem easilly, so install TRD3 (Toca Race Driver 3) once on OS W7 and also on W XP. Crack it on the both of OS. Than Copy the game from W XP and paste it into W7 OS. Run it from this copied folder. Because you have installed it, so your computer has records in registers and it will run and Starforce won´t crash your OS. :pt1cable:
    Sorry for my poor english.

    The game will run fine on windows 7 if you update the StarForce Copy Protection drive from here http://www.onlinesecurity-on.com/info.phtml?c=55
