Debugging Stop 0x74

A Stop 0x74 is usually related to registry corruption, especially the System hive, whereby all the system configuration information is stored. Although, this bugcheck can be related to the wrong file permissions set for a registry file, and RAM corruption.

The only useful parameter and information I found I could gather from this dump file, was by using the !error extension with the fourth parameter, which should produce something like this:

“Error code: (NTSTATUS) 0xc000014c (3221225804) – {The Registry Is Corrupt}  The structure of one of the files that contains Registry data is corrupt, or the image of the file in memory is corrupt, or the file could not be recovered because the alternate copy or log was absent or corrupt.”
