I work for a tech support company and I just learned that there is a new security update that you should have done, but maybe haven't had a chance to yet, and if it hasn't been done, your computer will crash. This is what is causing all the errors - you may have to call Microsoft or your OEM - being the manufacturer of your computer.

I'm sorry Razael, I don't know what it is called, I only know that it is a "known issue" right now. I would give Microsoft a call if you are having problems, or your manufacturer.

Thanks, that explains why the phone is plastered to my ear on hold with Microsoft. You think they'll ever pick up? I turned on my laptop and it said I had to register my copy of Windows XP to continue. However, I need to change my Network user name to be accepted by the campus network. But the uggery, buggery Microsoft won't even let me get to the Network files until I register my XP - online, which I can't get to because I have to change the network files. I'm caught in a vicious cycle...

here's the direct link for the patch (32bit windows xp... what you're probably running if you have xp): click. this is the url that details the patch itself: click. and this one is the page talking about the vulnerability and giving technical information as well as links to patch downloads for the other affected operating systems: click. this has been a paid public service announcement.
