What is spXX.sys (XX - random characters) driver? Rootkit or not?

Recently we got a lot of questions regarding the strange drivers with file names similar to
C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\spoh.sys
The pair characters after "sp" in the filename are automatically changed at every Windows boot.
It's very annoying problem for users because RegRun and UnHackMe detects the driver as suspicious.
The file doesn't exist on the disk.
Very strange! May it is a rootkit?
We discover the problem and found that the problem is related to well known issue SPTD.
Take a look at our article "What is SPTD####.sys?"
We made the xpbootlog.txt using our Bootlog XP software and found that there is no "spoh.sys" loaded during Windows boot-up process.
But we see the "SPTD.SYS".


But we could not see "sptd.sys" in the Drivers list.
What's happened?
The SPTD driver changed its name in the Kernel Drivers table to the "spXX.sys".
SPTD is not a rootkit.
"SPTD is a new method of access to storage devices that was developed by Duplex Secure Ltd."
SPTD driver is used by Daemon Tools software to copy/mount the protected CD/DVD disks.
The authors of the CD/DVD protection software do not like SPTD and try to prevent using of this software.
SPTD tries to deceive the protection. The war will not be finished.
Look at the SPTD FAQ how to uninstall SPTD software.

We suggest to download updated version of RegRun Suite 5.7 or higher and UnHackMe 4.7 or higher to resolve the issue.
We added the code for detecting SPTD version 1.55.

They say
"RegRun Security Suite is one of those very rare tool kits that no one who is serious about protecting their PC should ever be without. This toolkit covers all the bases when it comes to eradicating the attempted security threats from malware that we all face - daily. The near real time tech support, direct from Greatis, is nothing sort of superb, something that can be rarely said these days! I have no hesitation in recommending this suite to anyone."

Bob Schmulian:
Absolutely love it and have recommended to many people!

Ian Robinson:
It is FANTASTIC! It has saved my life on more than one occasion since I purchased it less than 6 months ago. I now would not run my system without it... it's worth many times the cost! The service and support are terrific. Helpful - friendly - and accommodating; and generally a reply is received within 12 hours. Just great.

Theodore Soucie:
Since RegRun was installed my system is more stable. I use to experience freezeup daily. I have not had a crash.
