Symptoms
A Windows Server 2003-based terminal server may restart unexpectedly when a client computer logs off from the terminal session. Additionally, you receive the following Stop error on the terminal server:
Stop code 0x0000008E
This issue occurs after you install hotfix 951749 on the terminal server.
Cause
This issue occurs because Terminal Services tries to free user mode memory during the session cleanup process. However, the related process and the user mode memory do not exist. Therefore, stop error 0x0000008E occurs.
Resolution
To resolve this issue, install hotfix 957877 on the terminal server. After you install this hotfix, Terminal Services frees user mode memory during the session cleanup process only when the memory exists.
