STOP 0x0000001A Fatal Error

  Red Tigger 17:27 06 May 2005

My PC's suddenly started restarting and generating error messages saying that there's a 'Device Driver error.

I've uninstalled the most recently installed software, IrfanView, and restored to a previous restore point but the messages and crashes keep occurring.

I've just been confronted with the 'blue screen of death' and this error message
STOP 0x0000001A
(0x00041284, 0x77D6C001, 0x00000CF7, 0xC0503000)

I'm running Windows XP Pro but the Microsoft website tells me that this error relates to Windows 2000.

Any suggestions greatfully received.

sfc /scannow
in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.
This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.
