Bluescreen Error code 1003 Category: (102)

I am having a windows xp pc. It was working fine. I had downloaded some application recently which changed my default home page and also added a toolbar on Internet Explorer. It was working fine but was a bit slow. So I ran a system tuneup utility to make my system perform a bit better. Now I am getting bluescreen constantly on my screen. I got the following inside Event Viewer.

Source: System error
Category: (102)
Type: Error
Event Id: 1003


It also looks like my system is getting more hot. I had downloaded a cpu temperature monitor apps that shows me 60 degree on idle mode.

Blue screen are mostly caused due to bad ram. But in your case it looks like some kind of software bug. As you said that your system is getting overheated it is necessary that you check the system fan. Ensure that there is no dust inside and the cpu is working cooler under idle mode. The normal temperature that lies in idle mode is between 40 to 60 degree. Change cpu fan if possible and apply a thick layer of heatsink.

The error listed is associated with drivers bug. There can be some incompatible driver in your system which is causing the crash. Disconnect any additional hardware connected to your pc like a printer or a usb card. Just remove it. And then check back. If the system works fine then you will need to first remove the associated driver of that hardware and add it back which is compatible with windows xp.
