I recently downlaoded the latest WinXP security updates, and after about 15 minutes on line, browsing, etc. I get a blue screen with the following message:

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Sent the error message to Microsoft via the automatic error reporting option, and got a message back to the effect that it's either a problem with recently installed hardware (not so; haven't) or software....hmmm, the only thing(s) I've installed are the MS security updates since Dec 14-15 and some of the periodic AVG Free AV updates. I tend to discount the latter as a possibility. Tried a system restore (suggested by the message) and seems like all OK--until I install those security updates again.

For now, have uninstalled them but was wondering if anyone else is running into issues with the security updates, or should I be looking for something else?

Thanks for any ideas.

You may want to download the latest drivers for your video card, sound card, network card, etc and see if that fixes the problem. These errrors are usually resulted by hardware cnflicts, maybe with the new sp2 upgrade
