  1. Hello,

    I am trying to connect remotely to a PC and if the user account has not been used to connect locally before it fails.

    I have attached the minidump created for each connection.

    Where to look?

    Your dumps are all the same. Win32k.sys

    From Microsoft:

    "That file (win32k.sys) often indicates a problem with
    a service (3rd party remote control services frequently). Start/run
    msconfig, go to the services tab. Click the button to hide all Microsoft
    Services, look at what is left"...

    It remains our main remote control server:
    - Altiris Carbon Copy

    What is the next step has this remote control product works on Windows XP?
    Any specifics for Windows 2000 to check?

    Windows 2000 and Windows XP are very similar in this respect. The recommendation is to disable the service. Is Windows 2000 updated to SP4?

    Yes the workstations are in windows 2000 SP4.

    I could disable the service for the remote access but there will be no more remote access to 1,500 workstations as Remote desktop is forbidden by the company policies....

    Good idea to upgrade to XP Pro but 1,500 workstations for a State Agency it will take a while to do so.

    In the meantime I have tried from CPC guru the following:
    my new issue is, I am getting errors from the beginning of the debug:

    I have tried with -y:
    C:\WINNT\Driver Cache\i386

    but always the same error about the path to get the symbols!!!

    Where should be the symbols in Windows 2000?

    I updated the driver Intel[R] 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller from 12/16/2003 to 6/21/2005

    and everything works now. I am waiting more user to test and confirm.

    Because Microsoft web site does not have your version W2K symbol deugging information as your version is at 2003. You are unable to format the stack trace. If you want to format the stack trace, you have to take w2K kernel or full memory dump. If the crash is at the win32k.sys, it may be related to related to graphical card device driver, faulty ram or fautly video card. We need the stack trace to confirm the culprit. For your case it is confirmed the culprit is graphical routine.

    A sample stack trace for faulty graphical video driver crash at win32k.sys.

    Probably caused by : win32k.sys ( win32k!IFIOBJR::IFIOBJR+63 )
