Run Recovery Console to repair a damaged system (like to fix boot problems).
Boot from Windows XP CD-ROM. Press 'R' to Repair a Windows XP installation. You will be prompted to select the windows installation to repair and to type administrator password (maybe the password is in blank). Type this command to check hard disk drive for archive errors and bad sectors:
chkdsk [drive:] /r
If the problem persists run a free memory test to check your RAM for errors. To do a bootable floppy or CDROM with the test see 'Windows Installation' at this web. http://www.memtest86.com/

stop messages are very rarely caused by spyware. most of the time its driver problems.
they also come with a file name ending in .sys. It would really help if you could give us that file name. one stop code can be used for errors in a lot of different files. It should be written on the blue screen before windows restarts.
marcerickson, your link leads to an article about the wrong stop code.
if you look at the link dsenette posted, the first thing you should make sure of is that you have all the windows updates. this stop code doesn't seem to be one of the common ones, so perhaps they've fixed it already.
