Blue Screen error: Stop 7F, 0x00000008 (double-fault)

I have a windows xp machine that is getting a blue screen with the error number: Stop 7F, 0x00000008 (double-fault) . Everything I can find says this is a single bit error in the ESP register. What, if anything, can be done to repair this short of a re-install?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

According to MS it is an error with the processor.

Have you scanned your memory or ran tests on the MB to see if you are getting any errors?

Check the MB for bulging or leaking caps
