After rebooting with MS updates, blue screen showed up. 2nd sentence- a thread tried to release a resource it did not own.

I tried start windows normally, safe mode, and last known good configuration and get blue screen everytime. I did not try any of the other choices; like reboot as I did not want to ruin anything on hard drive if it can be saved.

I am on Dell PC, XP and other than occasional viruses have had little trouble in the 3-4 years I've had it.

Thanks,
Plumarius

Worth a look, http://www.faultwire.com/solutions_bsod/A_...000E3-1226.html.

I would search the C: partition for any .dmp files...and then apply the following: Help Diagnosing BSODs And Crashes (BC) - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/176011/how-to-receive-help-diagnosing-blue-screens-and-windows-crashes/

I tried a reboot, but blue screen came back up. I could not attempt another reboot as we lost power for 12 hours (damn nor'easter)!

I had the IDENTICAL problem pop up two days ago on a 4-5 year-old Dell after Windows critical updates were applied.
