    I use Win XP SP1 prof.Since the last coupl of days I have been getting this mesage at startup that "Windows recovered from a serious error." The error window reads as:
    BCCode:86427532 BCP1:000001DB BCP2:00000002 BCP3:00000003 BCP4:0000000B
    OSVer:5_1_2600 SP:1_0 Product:256_1
    After the message it runs trouble-free
    I have tried system restore to a time before the errors started but of no avail.
    What does this error mean and what should i do about it ?Reinstalling is not an option for me.

    Thank you

    Click Start.
    Right-click My Computer.
    Click Properties.
    On the Advanced tab, in the Performance section, click Settings.
    In the Virtual Memory section, click Change.
    For Paging file size for selected drive, click No Paging File and then click Set.
    Click Yes after the following warning appears:
    If the paging file on volume X: has an initial size of less than xx megabytes, then the system may not be able to create a debugging information file if a STOP error occurs. Continue anyway?

    (X is the drive letter and xx is the amount of RAM installed on your computer minus 1 megabyte.)

    Click System Managed Size.
    Click OK four times, and then restart the computer when you are prompted
