  1. The infamous critical updates
    7606)appear to install ok until I reboot and Windows
    refuses to startup, displaying the ominous error message:

    *** STOP: 0X0000008E

    I have XP version 5.1 (2600.xpsp1.020828-1920: Service
    Pack 1)installed.
    I have scanned hundreds of messages on this newsgroup but
    to no avail - any advice would be much appreciated.
