NDIS.SYS error

I've just set up a really simple wireless network connecting 2 pcs both running XP (SP2). One pc works fine, the other has crashed about 5 times showing 'STOP 0x0000007E' and 'NDIS.SYS - address F72D9A5E'. The pc with the problem is a 1.66 Athlon with 512 MB RAM, 10Gb hard disk. Has anyone got any ideas? I am a bit of a novice so am stumped at the moment! Thanks.

have you sufficient free space on your hard drive. Windows needs about 300 MB free just to operate in.

Hi Howard. Sorry I managed to include a typo in my query! I have a 60Gb hard disk with 35Gb free so guess this should be OK. Windows seemed to be working fine on this pc until I set up the network connection. Thanks for your help and I'd welcome any other ideas you might have.

I would try removing everything that starts up when you boot except for the virus checker and firewall. If that does not work uninstall your wireless network software reboot and then load again.

All I can find is click here but I'm not sure it's any help.

Thanks Howard and Dan - I'll try both of your suggestions and post back once I've had a go. Appreciate your help.
