You have downloaded a bad file from a PtoP network. Geeks To Go does not help with problems like this.

Ummm from the bit of looking around I did, it appears to be related the Windows error reporting. Just an idea... hopefully I won't make anyone mad but heres the message I found.....actually found a few but heres the one saying it seems to be windows error reporting...

This is from one of the Windows XP Newsgroups: --- WindowsXP error reporting features are buggy and might continue to suggest your system has had some sort of STOP error, even when everything is normal. This is a common complaint in this newsgroup, so you are not alone. If you ever has need to troubleshoot a specific repeatable crash, turn on "complete memory dump" for analysis --- Their suggestion was the same as Steve's: disable the error reporting. Of course, if you start having real problems (blue screen of death), then you might want to turn it back on to see what's happening. Gotta love Microsoft!

>This is more of pain than a problem. You can go to the control panel and then to
>admin tool. From there click on services. Error reporting properties and change from
>auto to disable. Seems to work just fine.

Dsenette, i have been there and done the same thing. I no longer do any sort of PtoP anymore except when i am looking for Linux iso's. I may be wrong but i don't think so. I was getting the sysdata.xml files and the minidumps on my computer and had many problems with them. Deleting the files i downloaded always fixed the problem.
