Millenium crashes after startup with Error 06: 00C2: 0000A2E9 or Error 06:00C2: 0000A2EA
Posted on 2005-03-10
Windows Millenium starts up, asks for userid and password.
Icons paint on screen after password is entered.
A few moments after all icons paint on screen,
message "An error has occurred" with the data
"Error 06: 00C2: 0000A2E9" or "Error 06: 00C2: 0000A2EA" occurs
and you are prompted to hit ctrl-alt-delete to reboot system.
At this point the system is dead.
System was running fine until patches from Microsoft
were applied yesterday (don't remember which ones, unfortunately).
How can this be fixed?
Should the installation CDROM be re-run?
If so, will this wipe out all of the installed programs and configurations?
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
