Open original thread

While closing the Windows Service Application I get following error message
"Application popup: OPTSFTPService.exe - Application Error : The exception unknown software exception (0xc0000008) occurred in the application at location 0x7c8285f3."
. The message box is with "OK" and "Cancel"

Also the following Event log meesage is observed in the Event log(Application) "
Faulting application _______, version, faulting module ntdll.dll, version 5.2.3790.4455, fault address 0x000285f3.

However this application works fine in the Debug mode. The OS used is Win 2003 Server SP2.

I started getting this error after about 18-21 Dec. I have checked the Windows Updates after that date but the documentation doesn't give any clue.

Need help

Thanks in advance.
