0x0000008e at every shutdown

  1. I'm new to the board and there seems to be lots of good info here. I need some help with a BSOD at every shutdown. It is a fresh reload of XP Pro SP2 with a SOYO Dragon 2 motherboard, 1 GB of RAM, 160 GB Hard Drive, new Nvidia 6800 card made by EVGA. I have updated to the lastest Nvidia drivers from their website and have also flashed the BIOS on my motherboard with the latest from SOYO. Now at every shutdown or restart I get a BSOD with the error code 0x0000008e. I can't figure out what it is pointing to. I have many minidumps which I have attached here and I also have a kernel memory dump which I was trying to look at with WinDbg but I couldn't get the symbols to load. Any help or advice on this is greatly appreciated.

    The problem is with Crypto.SYS, which belongs to Netgear VPN Client software. The file's 3 years old, so you might be able to get an update.

    I am not using any sort of Netgear VPN or software. How else could that file get there??

    Do a search on your system for the file, and see if you can find out what it belongs to (Deterministic Networks?).

    Thanks for the help. I removed the file and now the system runs fine.
