STOP messages of this type are rare, obscure, and usually only of interest to programmers debugging their code.
Real-life scenarios of a computer encountering them are unlikely, so I’ve made it a lower priority to document them here; but we’ll be happy to address this in the Forum (which also will tip me off that I should add more to this present page).
If you prefer to have the icons present but get tired of the generic names XP assigns, use the following method to easily change to something more personal or interesting.

This checklist is also usually the best approach to troubleshooting some specific Stop messages, such as 0x0A and 0x50.NOTE: Many users search this site for the word minidump which often accompanies these Stop Message errors.The fact that a memory minidump occurred tells you nothing except what you already know — that there was an error.The Java Control Panel is a multipurpose control panel.It allows you to view and set a wide range of parameters controlling how, or if, Java technology runs on your computer.
