RE: KB925902 update causes STOP:c000021A fatal error at boot
I see this thread mainly deals with this problem in XP, however I have had my
old Windows NT (2000) system at work crash out with the same symptoms after
doing a Windows Update last weekend (looks like the first one that was done
since last December).

Can anyone advise on a fix specific to NT, or is it the same as the
procedure listed below?

Many thanks in advance...
