STOP: c000021a Hep Me...Hep Me...

I am running WindowsXP Media SP2: I recieved the STOP: c000021a fatal system error. The windows logon process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x0000005 (0x00000000 0x00000000). The system has been shut down. The system finally booted up after several attempts. I thought it might be a good idea to run Dr. Watson to see if possibly it will determine what is causing this issue, but i don't know how to run Dr. Watson. Can anyone shed any light on this error code or tell me how to run Dr. Watson. Thanks.

Here is a Microsoft article about how to troubleshoot your error:

How to troubleshoot a "STOP 0xC000021A" error

That is probably more useful than using Dr Watson:

Try Last Known Good Configuration - hit F8 after a reboot - just before the windows logo appears.

reloading windows is not problem solved.  Problem ignored and covered up more like it.
