Re: Cygwin causes 0x00000024 Stop Error (BLUE SCREEN)

Since 6/7 months I have 0x0000000a errors with my PC (Win2K SP3), the problem is very simple: when XFree is running and there is a write to /etc I got a blue screen.
Here are the steps I perform:

* start XFree (XWin+WindowMaker+ all that is launched by startxwin.bat);
* open a xterm;
* touch /etc/pippo (or any other file you want, within /etc).

Crash dump says the problem is caused by NaiFiltr.dll (McAfee). Perfect, I will disable McAfee (disable system scanning and all other scannings, close applications, stop services, disable services, rename McAfee directory in order to be sure it will not load, reboot).

But when I retry (with McAfee disabled), I got another nice blue screen, now the cause seems to be ntoskrnl.exe.

Looking at the stack I understand that when file system is modified in some way the OS will inform varios applications (maybe registered ones?) of the occurred modifications, so that they can do something (e.g. when the antivirus knows that a file is modified it will scan the file). It seems that the blue screnn occurs when the OS try to perform this notification.

The stack follows:

I tried to solve this problem (or at least to understand the cause) many times. I always failed. Now when I run setup.exe, before the installation begins I always shut down XFree.

Note that this problem occurs with my machine at work, but at home (again Win2K SP3) I have no problem.
