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

I have done some other try.
First of all I have uninstalled InterDrive 5.0 from FTP Software (a NFS client), I suspected that it caused many problems in my system (frequent crashes of explorer.exe, 3 minutes delay when loggin to my machine with telnet, blue screens (maybe)).

Now trying disabling McAfee (i.e. disabling its services (McShield and AVSync Manager) from the Services applet) all works.

So uninstalling InterDrive, I have no more crashes when McAfee is completely disabled.

Anyway I have made a little number of tests (6 or 7) because of their duration (start the system, login, wait for all services to start, start XFree, open xterm, touch /etc/pippo, wait for crash dump to be written to disk), so I can't be sure that the blue screens will appear in some other case.

Unfortunately I can exactly reproduce your problem without any McAffe or
other AV stuff. I'm running the latest Cygwin on XP-Home. I attached the
cygcheck -s and in a previous mail I wanted to attach the mini-dump but
I was not allowed to send it:
ezmlm-reject: fatal: Sorry, I don't accept messages larger than 100000
bytes (#5.2.3)

My system unfortunately did restart at once so I did not find any
information from the stack but if I could provide some more useful
information or any debug support (but I do not know anything about C!)
please let me know.
