My work computer has undergone something I can't fix. I wasn't even at the computer when it happened!
I sat down and tried to move the mouse, no dice. Then, the BSOD appears and gave me the gobldygook you usually see when Windows crashes. The code was:
0x0000008E (0xC0000006, 0xBF80661D, 0xF25B34A0, 0x00000000)
It ocurred arounf the time the Windows Backup Utility was scheduled to perform my regular backup, but I wasn't looking at the screen when it happened, so I'm only guessing.
The programs open at the time were Outlook 2003, a database program called PeopleTrak, and perhaps IE7 (latest beta version)
The OS in Windows XP Pro SP2 with all critical fixes and updates. I'm running a Dell Dimension 8200 with the original hardware (except for a CD burner that i added in addition to the standard DVD-ROM drive). I run regular scans with Symantec Antivirus Corperate Edition, Windows Defender, and Adaware SE.
My computer is part of a local domain, the DNS is running Windows Server 2003 and is maintained by our tech consultants (who, I assume keep it up to date and patched).
I tried to run the recovery console, but I don't have the local machine's Administrator password (will attempt to find the person who should know it).
What's going on and how do i fix it?!
