    I have been repeatedly getting Blue Screens of Death w/XP where a dump user starts. I redid the HD several times with no success, then I tried the HD in new system, same problem, soooooo I bought a new HD and installed XP, then my MB drivers, then updated my drivers and then updaed XP. I did a create system restore point for every major step. Everything seemed okay up to this point. SP2 was installed, and all it's updates - again no problems.

    I began installing my work software - MS Office, Adobe Photoshop, etc - no problems.

    Used some of the program with no problems. And then installed Norton's SystemWorks and lived updated - no problems. Did Virus updates and scan - no problems. I though it was all smooth sailing, boy was I wrong. All of a sudden my VPU began doing recoveries so I got more Updates for Via and Ati, so far so good.

    I was working on some graphics and WHAM! The Blue Screens of Death hit me and started a dump user. Same darn thing that happended with the old HD and with other system. So when I rebooted I ran SystemsWorks and it found this - Missing Program Files: C:\Windows\system32\mapisrvr.exe cannot access neccessary file, gapi32.dll

    Is this the cause of the Blue Screen from Hell? (Yes I believe in hell and that it is a Blue Lake of Fire - not Red! It's Blue I tell you, I just know it! and Computers are the instruments that will take us there - Muhahahahahha)
    Okay back to reality, sorry momentary lapse in senility.

    How do I fix this little booger? The SystemsWorks is a joke on fixing it. Hey but at least it may have found my Blue Screen problem.???I pray.....
