Turn off your computer and make sure it powers down, drop it in a thirty-three foot hole in the ground. Bury it completely, rocks and boulders should be fine, Then burn all the clothes you may have worn at any time you were alive.

Try to log in in security model or Safe Mode and go to cmd command. I'm almost sure you have a spywire thing in your system32, something 'nls' related that does a forced shut down... Which is your windows?
I downloaded MagicISO, and what you linked me seemed pretty straightforward and easy to follow. But SOMETHING just ISN'T working! When I followed the steps, with the driver .dmg file highlighted, all I seemed to do was create a brand new .iso thing with nothing on it, rather than convert it! And when I try to open the file in ISO directly, obviously it doesn't work because it's still .dmg
Just to clarify: the thing you linked me says to use the folder icon to open DMG files. But I don't see the point in this step; you're forced to click "cancel" anyway, because if you click "open", it won't open. Then the next step says to click the page with the tick in it's icon to open "properties" dialogues. However, because I had to cancel out of the folder step, I'm not even sure if its actually the DMG file that's highlighted anymore; I made sure that it was highlighted down the bottom, but I'm not sure that this actually made a difference. Apple HFS and Apple HFS+ were already unchecked, for whatever I did it for. I only had to tick one of the things it said to tick. Then when I click the button it says to click to save to ISO, that's when it feels like I'm just making a blank one. And I still have a DMG file; though I'm not sure if this is normal and that a duplicate in ISO form has simply been made, or whether the DMG file itself is supposed to become an ISO file.
And yes, I tried to open the new ISO file... I thought the steps I was linked were the only steps I had to go through? How do you mount the image to a virtual CD ROM? Is that the next process that I have to go through? And how do I even know that what I'm mounting is actually what used to be the dmg file?
Well, opening MagicDisc is the next step, it should create a little icon in your toolbar (If you're using Windows 7 it should be in the little box next to the clock, when you click the ^ arrow). Right click the icon after you've created the ISO and click "Mount image to drive (F:/)" or whichever letter you have, then search for the directory with your new ISO in it and open that. Then go to "My Computer" as you would when locating the drive for a normal CD, and click on your newly mounted image. It should be in there and operable then.
If not, maybe you need to search for a new way to install a driver, there may already be an online ISO for your scanner anyway, in which case this whole ordeal was a waste of time

Unrealistic garbage, it's just malware on top of the fact that you didn't care to spend the dough or time on protecting your computer. Toss out the RAM and Harddrive, buy a new one, and then try it again.
