Good morning expert,

Was running a query in MS SQL Query Analyzer doing an inner join aginst millions or rows. I had  Word, Outlook and an ASCII editor called Ultra Edit 32 open. System crashed. After reboot when I open any of these programs I get
The exception breakpoint  
A breakpoint has been reached (0x8000003) occured in the application at location CX11531d7b
Click ok to terminate program
Click Cancel to debug the program

If I click Cancel I get
Just-In-Time Debugging Handler and CLR Remote Host
JIT Debugging component registration is incorrect.
Please repair the installation of the most recent version of Visual Studio .NET or Remote Debugging components.
Alternative, execute the following command as an Adminstrator to manually repair the JIT Debugging component registration:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Miicrosoft Shared\VS7Debug\vs7jit.exe" /RegServer

Went to command prompt and at
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Miicrosoft Shared\VS7Debug
executed vs7jit.exe

Got message
Just-In-Time Debugging Handler and CLR Remote Host
Microsoft(R) Just-In-Time Debugging Handler
Copyright(c) Microsft Corporation 1992-2002 All rigths reserved

usage: vs7jit[option]

-p[process id]  :attach a debugger to [process id]

[AppName[Args]  : Open the specified executable to be debugged with Visual Studio .NET

-?  :show this dialog                        OK

Other programs such as Excel and Paint appear normal
Have tried rebooting, repair on Office no change.
Any idea how I might fix this?

The most useful debugging information is the bugcheck code and the minidump. When Windows crashes with blue screen, it writes a system event 1001 and a minidump to the folder \winnt\minidump. Attach 3 to 4 minidumps at the any webspace. I will study the dump and find out the culprit

Check system event 1001 and it has the content of the blue screen
Control Panel -> Adminstrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> System -> Event 1001. Copy the content and paste it back here

Good morning CPC2004,

Looked for \winnt\minidump. Guess I am just ignorant but I cannot find that directory.
Found the Event Viewer in Admin Tools. It shows dozens of System Log entries of Type: Information. The details of these entries are
Application popup: WINWORD.EXE - Application Error : The exception Breakpoint
A breakpoint has been reached.
 (0x80000003) occurred in the application at location 0x11531d7b.

Click on OK to terminate the program
Click on CANCEL to debug the program

Perhaps I have misdescribed the sympton. There is no blue screen. The computer runs ok excpept when I try to run some applications I get a Windows pop-up with text similar to the text in the log entry above. And  other applications run ok except when I try to print  in any application or try to save files in some applications (IE) I get the pop-up.
Beginning to think I am going to have to C: Format the machine. but would like to gather any info I can about the situation to keep it from happening again.

It is SQL software error. I searched google and there have a lot of hits relating to W2K and SQL for the error code 0x8000003.  What is your SQL version and W2k Serice Pack level?
