Consider the following scenario:

  • You join a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista to a network.
  • The network is configured to use Internet Protocol security (IPsec) network address translation traversal (NAT-T) security.
  • You use IPsec to communicate with another computer in the network.

In this scenario, you randomly receive a Stop error message that resembles the following, and then the computer restarts:

STOP 0x000000C2 (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)


  • This Stop error describes a BAD_POOL_CALLER issue.
  • The four parameters in this error message vary, depending on the configuration of the computer.
  • Not all “0x000000C2” Stop errors are caused by this issue.
