I have the following error everytime I boot my computer.
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

A driver has overrun a stack-based buffer. This overrun could potentially allow a malicious user to gain access to gain control of this machine.

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Technical information:

*** STOP: Ox000000F7 (0x72006420,0x00008DF3,0xFFFF720C,0x00000000)

I have changed ram and it still happens. I can`t do anything with this profile. If I log in as administrator in safe mode it will however let me work on it and do certain things. Virus checks it will blue screen and die at some point with same error as above.
