wipe everything out from the registry once again and install the latest SFFT driver from here:
make sure to install it manually via the device manager (I can post a step by step guide if you dont know how to do that)..

i resolve the problem by reinstalling the SO, it's less time consuming if u don't get the solution in less then 20 - 30 minutes, i spend at least 3 hours cleaning up the sistem and restarting the computer -

10x for the help PS47 - but it isn't the solution :(

maybe my problem will be taken in consideration by the enthusiast developers
