Windows Blue Screen Of Death error: STOP: 0x000000D1
This Stop error indicates that the system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by faulty or mismatched RAM or a damaged pagefile.
When your computer restarts after you install Windows XP Home Edition, you may receive either of the following error messages:

- The Page file that is used by the Virtual Memory Manager may be damaged.

i was also having this problem. this appeared while downloading and executing an exe file from the internet. Scanned the computer using avg. Avg reported it as a problem of rootkit( a sophisticated malicious software, apt to change itself so that it can't be detected). AVG showed it in the c:\windows\driver\ and was unable to remove it. Then I downloaded security essentials from the microsoft( firstly uninstalled the existing antivirus program) and went for quick scan. It resolved the problem in no time.
