extensible authentication protocol over LAN...this seems to be the last service that kicks in before xp BSOD's. stop errors include 0x50,0x8e,0x24,0x27,0x0a. Anyone have any ideas what might be going on with my system? I just did a clean install of XP after using W2KPro for the past year without a hitch, now all of a sudden my comp seems to be having problems with XP's "new" architecture. Please help if you can, it would be really appreciated..
