I started getting the bsod with error c0000218 on both of my pcs at the first of Decemer, 2010. Running corporate edition 9x. Tried everything short of formatting the hd and reinstalling XP with sp3. Ran several spyware and malware removal apps to no avail. After the first bsod, I ghosted a known good partition back on the drive. Ok until the first reboot, then sameo. I ghosted my second pc which had an image dated 10-23-10 and the definitions were last updated on 10-16-10. Worked ok for a couple of days and then I decided to run the liveupdate, brought the definitions up to date. Rebooted, same bsod. Reimaged, uninstalled Corporate AV, no problems. Uninstalled AV on my second pc, bsod gone. The event viewer never mentioned anything about Symantec causing the errors in either the system or application log. I'm done with Symantec AV. Just to think that the next step I would attempt was blowing away the partition and reinstalling everything. Symantec is the obvious culprit here. I've had my battles with Norton before, but never to this extent.
