    Post Terminating Thread

    Upon Starting my computer today. I got a message that read
    Terminating thread due to a stack overflow problem.
    A VxD, possibly recently installed has consumed to much stack space.
    Increase the setting of "MinSPs" in system INI or remove recently installed VxD's. There are currently 5 sps allocated.
    I have gotten this message before, but it does not seem to cause any interference with anything I do on the computer. I was wondering if this is a precursor to a larger problem. I would greatly appreciate any input on this.

    Thank you all

    Vxds are driver programs, it is possible that you could be loading one of them more than once. If it tells you which vxd is causing the problem that may be a little more helpful, also some more system information would help.

    If you have already increased the SP and still have this problem. Your computer could be infected with a virus.
    Take a look at this KB article Q274841 for more information.

    Hope this helps
