    Corrupted memory is cited as your cause.

    To make sure your RAM hasn't gone bad run Memtest. See this link and follow the tutorial's instructions:

    Let it run for a LONG time. The rule is a minimum of 7 Passes; the more Passes after 7 so much the better.. There are 8 individual tests per Pass. Many people will start this test before going to bed and check it the next day.

    If you have errors you have corrupted memory and it needs to be replaced.

    Also, with errors you need to run this test per stick of RAM. Take out one and run the test. Then take that one out and put the other in and run the test. If you start getting errors before 7 Passes you know that stick is corrupted and you don’t need to run the test any further on that stick.

    * Get back to us with the results.

    *** Also, I strongly suggest that a) you install Service Pack 3 and b) you need to have more than 256 megs of RAM. 2 Gigs if your system will allow it, but whatever you do install the maximum that you can.

    Thanx for the help....i will run Memtest and get back to you with the results ASAP.

    But before that with respect i want to know one thing why should i install service pack 3...As i have licence version of windows service pack 2 and if i install it from windows update then in that case i have net connection with limited downloading capacity i.e 1Gb for 1 that's why i want to know is it necessary to install the service pack 3 for removing these errors....

    once again thanx for help...

    SP3 won't remove your errors but it does include security updates, etc. However, reading of your situation then stick with SP2.

    You definitely need more RAM though.

    Good question. To find out what RAM your system can take go to Crucial is one of the world's leading makers of Memory. They have completely free and safe system scan that will tell you what your type(s) of RAM your system can use and how much. You'll need to install their Active X but as I said it is safe.

    Many people who build systems (I've used it many times) like to use this tool. This doesn't mean you have to buy from Crucial. Right now memory is very cheap. It certainly is a buyers market. Just don't mix and match your Memory.

    Your error (first time I have ever seen it here) is 0xD0: DRIVER_CORRUPTED_MMPOOL

    This is caused by faulty drivers attempting to address an interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high that it is not permitted to do. Thus, your system crashes.

    The driver cited as the problem is HFSYS.SYS and there is very little on the 'net concerning it but it is not malware. Here is what I found:

    Product name: Hide Folders XP
    Description: Hide Folders XP driver
    Manufacturer: FSPro Labs

    Important Edit Update: See this link and please note that they listed as of August 20th several of FSPro Labs products have been invaded with a virus. Link:
