What is the cause of the error message?


Tried to install a antivirus and when it restarted it gave me a "stop error screen message"

The antivirus you are trying to install is the cause of the “stop error message” A Stop message might seem to appear at random, but through careful observations, you might be able to associate the problem with that exact activity

Windows XP Professional compatibility is particularly important for applications that might install file system filter drivers, for example antivirus, Internet firewall, multimedia, and backup software File system filter drivers can perform value-added processing to enhance and extend file system functionality, but installing an incompatible file system filter driver might cause Stop errors Make sure that the antivirus in question is fully Windows XP Professional compatible and if not, locate and install the latest updates
