    BSOD after installing latest VMWare Tools

    CChecks Lurker

      I upgraded my VMWare Workstation to 5.5.2 build-29772 with no problems.  I started one of my VM's and was prompted that VMWare Tools were out of date.  I clicked to install the newer VMWare Tools and rebooted.  After that, I get the dreaded:


      STOP: c000021a (Fatal System Error)

      The Windows Logon Process System process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc0000139 (0x0000000 0x00000000). The system has been shut down.


      I had this exact same thing happen to another VM in the past when I upgraded and unfortunately I had forgotten so went about upgrading the VMWare Tools again.   


      Now my question is, if I mount this vmdk on another working VM, is there anything that I can delete to remove the bad VMWare Tools install and get the VM up and running again without having to boot from my Windows XP CD and doing a repair?
