Hi,

If this suddenly appears, i'm gonna take my bet on either a bad HD or bad memory...

4ceReconSniper,
My first thought was bad memory, too.  Specs: AMD Athlon 1.33GHz, ASUS A7A266 MB, 512MB RAM, Maxtor 5T040H2 HD.

1stITMAN,
The system is running ZoneAlarm Pro.  I will remove that first and see if it resolves the problem.

Very frustrating!  The user who was having this problem is at a remote office of one of my clients - he had called with this 'emergency'.  When I suggested he shut down ZoneAlarm as a test, he said he "doesn't have time to test it right now" even though it takes about 5 seconds, much faster than rebooting after a bsod, which he's doing 2-3 times a day as it is.  I guess when it becomes an emergency again, he'll try it out - maybe I won't have time to deal with it then.

Anyway, thanks for the help.  I'm splitting the points because I'm pretty sure it's one of those problems, even though I don't know which one.
