From time to time when I have gone into Acronis and hit the Recover button to restore my machine from the backup image, when the computer reboots and I'm placed at the desktop I see this error message: "The system has recovered from a serious error." Then below that there is an option to send the error info to Microsoft. I have only noticed this message when I've hit the Recover button in Acronis, although you can see this error message in other ways also. I went to the Microsoft site and printed off some info. Basically they said something like this error message happens because after a Minidump file is written, the paging file continues to have a flag set that indicates that a Minidump file must be written. They suggest obtaining the latest service pack for XP. Their link says wxp_sp1. Well I'm using SP2 so I don't see how the problem couldn't already be fixed. They also discussed a workaround by going into the paging file and doing some changes there. I was wondering if any of you have seen this error message on your screen after restoring your computer from a backup image.
