VPN causing the remote computer to freez and blue screen

Last Modified: 2007-11-27
VPN from home into work computer causes the work computer to Page Fault and blue screen every time.
 One of our employees has a Gateway 3.4GHz Desktop running Windows XP Pro with 1 gig of memory.  Every night when he uses VPN to get onto his work computer, the work computer is frozen when he comes in the next day and then Blue Screens with normally a Page-Fault in non paged area
STOP: 0x00000050 COx8D4A6000, 0x0000000000  etc...

I have replaced the memory with new and still the same problem.  He had an all in one printer hooked up that I thought might be causing the problem but I have since uninstalled it and disconnected the printer.  It still does the same thing.  Any suggestions for me to try or point me in the right direction for what other information you would need to resolve this.  Thanks,
