Yes, you can...and please do. Then when you get the BSOD, jot down all the error information and post it here for me.

Open Control Panel and double click System. Under the "Advanced" tab, in the Startup and Recovery section, click the "Settings" button. In the System Failure section, uncheck the box next to "Atomatically Restart", click "Ok"...then "Apply" and "Ok".

Reboot.


Yo Wannabe hows it hangin!

Hey JoNNiE - D...Don't let the Luck o the Irish bite you too hard!

The windows logon Process system Process terminated unexpectly

That's the one I was hoping it wasn't... :)

This indicates a corrupt registry hive. Have you and your buddy installed anything common on your machines? This is generally NOT caused by viri or malware, but by an update, botched installation, or botched uninstallation.

If your System Restore is in good order and you have a viable restore point, we can try to replace the hive. OR you can do an Inplace Upgrade (Repair) installation. The repair is the better choice as it removes any updates that may have caused the problem.

Your call... :tazz:

Whats up buddy!?

Okay heres the funny thing, That day i went down to my friends house to connect to his wireless network, Well the laptop was fine untill i Downloaded the windows updates! Im pretty sure it has somthing to do with Windows updates and Norton so what im thinkin about doin is Runing the Windows Repair Disc, or possibley Reformiting and installing a Fress OS. Reason im thinkin bout Reformating is because i already ran the rapair disc and i still got blue screen shut downs! Grrr Anyways I'm gonna choose ' Not to help protect my pc' for the SP2 not use any of the windows updates Except Windows Media 10 wich ill download manually and install.I'm Then gonna install AVG 7.1 and Zonealarm pro and not gonna except any updates from Windows MS<c-u-n-t-s) LOL. Any Suggestions you have for Security Downloads such as anti Virus, Firewalls and spyware removal tools let me know!

Love ya man
JoNNiE D :tazz:

Im gonnnna get sooo drunk PARTYY PARTYYY! Enjoy Paddys day you GEEK :)

Howdy JoNNiE - D...

There is a free version of AVG available here. You might also check into Avast!...I actually like it a little better than AVG, but they are both very good.

Firewalls...I like Sygate. There are also free versions of ZoneAlarm and Kerio.

For a list of recommended Anti-Malware tools, go Here.

Hello

I appear to be having a similar problem. Here is my error message:

STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error}
The Windows Logon Process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status code 0xc0000139 (0x00000000, 0x00000000)
The System has been shut down.

I had just installed 2 programs called DIRMS and BuzzSaw. They are used for defragmentation of the harddrive. The website is located at http://www.dirms.com/ for both. After restarting the system, this error came up. The system continually comes up with this message, no matter what start up option I choose from the F8 startup menu. There were 2 services which were added by these programs, and I have disabled both of them using the Recovery Console from the Windows XP install CD, but have not yet restarted to see if disabling these services fixes the problem. I am currently running a 'chkdsk c: /r', as there were errors reported when checking.

I do not wish to perform a full install of Windows if it can be helped.

Steven

[edit]: disabling the services did not help, nor did running chkdsk.

Hello there

Do you have Norton installed? What Verson of XP are you runing? do you have Service pack 2 installed? There could be a number of reasons why your getting this error BUT I found that the main reason was to do with Norton and Automatic updates, As soo as i reformatted I choosed not to protect my computer usin windows firewall then installed my own seperate firewall " Zone alarm pro" also Disabled my windows updateing ever since, I havent had the blue error shut down and my systems bein runing perfectly!

Hello

I do not have Norton installed, and I am running Windows XP Professional with SP2 installed. I have all the latest updates for Windows, and had no problems prior to today. No new updates have been installed since the last successful restart of Windows. I've had no problems running the default Windows Security features, including the Windows Firewall. I have the free version of AVG installed.

I tried performing a repair/upgrade install, but the setup stalled while installing the network devices during the GUI install stage. I am currently trying to do a secondary install so I can back up all my documents while I have the opportunity to do so. I will also install the software I had just installed prior to this error occuring to see if that is what caused the problem to begin with.

If anyone can think of another possible solution so I don't have to reformat, let me know.

Well...we'll see what happens with the new install. I've never had any problems remotely like this until now, and I've had this install running for at least 6 or 7 months now. Guess it was time to format anyway, just didn't really want to do it right now.

Once I have a working version of Windows installed and everything backed up, I'll try to figure out what caused this. I'm thinking it was one of those programs I just installed, because they weren't working properly when I tried to run them, which is why I restarted my computer.

Oh well. The install is going fine for now. Hopefully it will finish and at least let me back up my files.
