Safe mode only boots essential drivers, but it does use the drivers you have loaded.

To check if you have starforce, and how to remove there are instructions here

Can you see anything in the logs in regards to this error? Is SMART enable on your HDD's? Does it come up with anything?

Did you uninstall drivers before updating new ones? I know in XP they have driver rollback, but especially for nVidia cards, this causes problems, and its best to uninstall the old ones first.

I would also see if you could get a non starforce version of your game, you shouldn't have to put up with programs which destroy your system.
Best thing would be to speak to the company which released the game.
IMHO, Starforce doesn't hinder the people who pirate these games, only the people who play them. Giving paying customers a reason to just get the pirated versions themselves.
