I recently starting getting the Windows box that generically says "Windows has recovered from a serious error". If I Send Report then it takes me to this page ( http://oca.microsoft...e2120554&SID=11 ) about the error STOP 0x000000EA THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER . Because I have to link to the page for this error, I don't know if it is the actual error that I am experiencing or just a relation.
So, I've updated my drivers from GeForce and ABIT, and run Ad-Aware, Norton AV, and Ewido Suite Plus to remove any malware and such, which there was a small amount of but they were easily fixed. I've changed my BIOS to Disable Fast Write for my AGP. I even changed my Hardware Acceleration to None. None of these things has prevented the error message. If I click Don'T Send on the error message, it continues to popup in a second, every time. Obviously, I have no idea how to identify this problem in more detail and fix it.
One more thing. I'm not sure if this is related, but this error appeared for the first time when WinXP asked me for the first time to activate Windows within 7 days. This happens every time I start Windows now. When I click OK to activate, it says Windows is already activated, which I already knew. I don't know if this is a related problem, but any advice about fixing this as well would be appreciated.
