I also came up with this error code, and i googled it. it is a virus and
microsoft states that the sp2 has a patch in it. i checked the next listing
in google and someone explains what a buffer overrun is but not how to fix.
what i am trying to find out is there some way to get files off of my main
drive to my secondary drive. as i will have 2 buy a new operating system.
apparently the person i brought this off of used xp.pro on 2 many
computersso mine is inactive? i can't get updates. hope this helps, or if you
know how to move files without explorer let me know
