XP Pro Stop Error

By dberry45 ·
I am getting a Windows Stop error before reaching the desktop on my laptop. Then the computer reboots - this seems to have something to do with a driver (not really sure as the stop error does not stay on the screen long enough to get the information). The error only occured at home where I have wireless DSL. I disconnected the wireless and direct connect with ethernet and the error has reappeared only once but I am concerned next time it occurs I will not be able to correct. Any suggestions ----

When you are in windows you can disable the auto reboot to see dump message better for troubleshooting.
(right click) my computer -- properties -- advanced (TAB) -- startup and recovery (click settings button) -- uncheck automatically restart.

This will keep the blue screen on the system to get some information to help troubleshoot.

Is it possible that you have not updated the security patch for the RPC Blaster virus?
