Default [HELP] nv4.disp infinite loop!!

Hello! At one point whilst restarting my computer i got BSOD which told me that a file called nv4.disp was in an infinite loop. Having come across this problem before i restarted the system, booted the computer in safe mode and then un-installed the drivers. However when i re-installed the drivers and restarted my computer BSOD re-appeared and said nv4.disp was in an infinite loop. I tried the same process over and over again until i just got rid of the drivers and stopped re-installing them. Can anyone offer a solution to the problem?

Yours Faithfully

I have heard of this problem before.. the nv4 thing is referring to your nvidia drivers, However there is nothing wrong with your video drivers, some other problem is causing this loop issue. By chance do you have spy sweeper installed?

If not a friend of mine has this same problem.. we goggled numerous time to find a step by step fix and this is the one we found to fix it...Hope it works for you.. (I'm not taking credit for it hence why I'm quoting it)
