on the last leg of the creative driver update install the system went out for a web4 update.  i would estimate midway through the installation the blue screen appeared. I can get to the desktop in safe mode, have removed the creative software, did two system restores and still have a blue screen. Ran regfix no difference made. system has been fine up to this point.

    Did you choose, last known good config from the Window's boot start menu you access by pressing F8?
    If you go into the device manager list in safe mode, can you chose to "roll back" driver from the "Driver" folder in the sound card properties?

    Had a similar problem with my XFi.  Had to disable the hardware in safe mode device manager to boot into normal mode.

    Yes I did go to last known configuration to no avail. I will try to roll back the driver and disable the hardware
