For those actually running Server 2008 SP2, such Previews were Optional updates. I don’t think any MSFN member running Vista installed it at the time, since the build number change was not noted here until April 2019. About your BSOD: AFAIK those Win32k.sys BSODs were all attributable to applications that depended on version string “6002.” Even if you don’t use Avast/AVG, antivirus would still be my first guess. One MSFN member traced his BSOD to VMWare (see my link and read a few pages). If you can identify another program that was broken by 6003, I would be as interested as anyone. Since this seems to be the only Vista thread that new members want to read, I’ll mention that Avast solved their issue with a microupdate in June 2019. To install Avast 18.8 on 6003, I would try an online installer because the offline installer is older than the microupdate. Nah , it was a clean windows Vista SP2 (no progs). Sorry for the late reply . Somehow , I was able to boot and deleted this junk from safe mode . Yet it left numerous traces , for example inside winsxs. Again , I don't have Avast , I think I wrote it . Anyways , thanks for the explanations. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
