SYMPTOMS
When a registry hive becomes damaged, your computer may become unbootable, and you may receive one of the following Stop error messages on a blue screen:

Unexpected Shutdown
Stop:0xc0000135
CAUSE
Registry damage often occurs when programs with access to the registry do not cleanly remove temporary items that they store in the registry. This problem may also be caused if a program is terminated or experiences a user-mode fault.
RESOLUTION
NOTE: The hotfix that is described in this article automatically repairs the registry during startup, but does not display any notification of this process. If you import a damaged registry hive, you may receive a notification, and the recovery of the registry hive takes place as it imports.

To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows XP. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

If the registry error is not consistant "different error points", I would look at a possible RAM problem. Saw this on one box, and after replacing the RAM, no errors.

NOTE: The errors pointed to numerous .VXD's and involved boot/monitor/keyboard/mouse problems
