JSI Tip 8737. You receive a STOP 0x00000005 (INVALID_PROCESS_ATTACH_ATTEMPT) in Windows XP SP2 or Windows Server 2003?

NOTE: Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 can also experience the subject behavior because it includes the SP2 components.

This behavior is the result of stack corruption in Http.sys that surfaces if an antivirus, or firewall, installs TDI filter drivers.

While no fix for Windows Server 2003 is currently available, you can download a Windows XP SP2 hofix (887742).
