When a system runs Services for Macintosh and McAfee Anti-Virus software, you may receive a blue screen STOP 0xA error or errors similar to the following:
STOP: 0x0000000a (0x00000004, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x8010b262)
STOP: 0x0000000a (0x00000004 0x00000002 0x00000001 0x8010b262) IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
STOP: 0x00000024 (0x001901f9 0xf5c27c0c 0xf5c27a48 0x8010b260) NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM


McAfee Anti-Virus software uses a filter driver. The presence of a filter driver requires system drivers to allocate additional stack space in I/O request packets (IRPs). An IRP in use by Services for Macintosh had insufficient space for insertion of filter driver stack information. The result was the STOP 0xA error message.
