  1. Hi all,
    it happended twice now, I start my desktop and while it has not yet finished to fully boot it switches off. I have to push the reset button to get it work again, it looks like it is switched on but everything is black on the screen. After resetting everything worked well.
    I attach the minidump folder with the two files.
    I run WXP Pro SP3
    Thanks for your help, bye

    Inside the 2 Minidumps:
    imapi.exe: Windows System file: CD recording
    ekrn.exe: Eset NOD32 Antivirus
    eamon.sys: Eset NOD32 Antivirus

    Suggest to run CCleaner
    And decide on another Antivirus if it continues

    Try Free Antivirus like Avast or Avira

    Hi, thanks for your answer,
    do you think NOD32 could be in conflict with the system, maybe right at startup?
    Thanks, bye

    It is a bit difficult to confirm just yet

    From the Bugchecks it can be a program like NOD32 (or Zone Alarm, if you have that)
    It can be faulty Ram. You could try Memtest on your Ram
    It can be Virus/Trojan, look here for that test
    It can be Drivers (make sure all updated) or even physical Hardware faulty !!!

    Too early to tell. But if you did all the above, then I'd say we'd know :)

    I can do all the above only tonight before shutting down all my PCs. I'd just like to tell you that I often have also another windows error message running an application of mine, I attache the event log here so you coul tell me if you know the involved DLL or if it is maybe part of the application.
    Thanks, bye

    You may be able to fix those errors by re-installing the Microsoft Visual Basic 6 Runtime components.
    You can download them by clicking here: Download VB6 Runtimes
