  1. my PC keeps getting a blue screen with stop 0xc000021a error when logging into a profile in Windows XP.
    then when i restart, i get a popup box 0xc0000006 error saying 'explorer.exe failed to initialize' and then it just shows my desktop wallpaper and the cursor only. i cant even run task manager. it still happens when i restart.

    heres my log:

    Your HJT log is clean and I have moved your thread to our Windows OS forum.

    Go and read this thread HERE and see if it helps you to identify the culprit.

    If it doesn`t, please attach 5 or 6 of your latest minidumps.

    Regards Howard :)

    i think this could be caused by my scanner driver
    im trying to uninstall it, but i keep getting this error:

    "The Win 16 Subsystem has insufficent resources to continue running. Click on OK, close your applications, and restart your machine"

    any ideas how to get past that?
