I have seen this error associated with 2 different applications one is a Firefox error due to a corrupt file and the other is in Norton antivirus, If you are running any of the above programs I would uninstall and reinstall both applications to make sure, after you have uninstall ed both before reinstalling I would run cc cleaner and clean your registry and then reinstall. here is a link to cc cleaner its completely free CC cleaner

Good day. Symcuw.exe is a SymCUW from Symantec Corporation belonging to Symantec Shared Component. These means you have a symantec antivirus or software installed in your system. You can easily remove it by using Malwarebytes - Anti malware. You can get it on this link:

> You just need to click the download the latest version on the right side
> Then install it on your pc
> Allow it to update first
> Then scan your pc

Hope this information will resolve your issue. Have a great day and thanks for choosing fixya.

    Error code 0x00000002

    STOP 0x2 DEVICE_QUEUE_NOT_BUSY error code has a value that is 0x00000002. This is a fatal error typically known as STOP message or Blue Screen of Death (BSOD).
    This error generally occurs in Windows XP but may also occur in latest version of Windows such as Windows Vista or windows 7. The computer may stop responding without warning. Moreover, your computer may give error messages like STOP 0x00000002 error or related errors and if blue screen appeared then you may have to restart the system in the mean time of your work due to which unsaved work will be lost.
    Cause of Error:
    • You may be using corrupted profile in your system which raised this problem
    • The device driver of your system is not updated
    • Malfunction of hardware usually is the cause of error such as STOP 0x2 DEVICE_QUEUE_NOT_BUSY or similar error
    • Registry database of your system may have corrupted or modified erroneously by invalid application
    • You have installed new hardware unsystematic or installed unknown application
    • Spyware has infected the PC
    • Antivirus software is not working
    • The operating system or application might have run out of usable memory.
    This is one of the serious problem in computer if it is not resolved instantly then it might create some more unexpected error. STOP 0x00000002 error and its related error will disturb you all the time and you may have to bear loss of data. When blue screen of death appear on your monitor screen then you need to restart directly whether you have saved your work or not. Therefore, you are suggested to fix STOP 0x00000002 error as earliest possible.

    How to Fix:
    To fix STOP 0x00000002 error you need to follow the following methods.

    • If this error occurs in your pc then you will have to restart the PC and then press F8 key before appearing Windows. You will see a black screen with white text giving many options. Select the option "Last Known Good Configuration" and press Enter. If you have configured the computer improperly then it may fix the error.
    • If you have installed any hardware in your system then the chances is more that the device driver is not updated and thus errors of type STOP are given at the time of operation. You must download latest drivers.
    • If your system does not become stable then you need to try scanning of registry with this tool. Since, registry keeps all configurations of your system if it gets impaired then you must download registry repairing softwareand repair it .
    Mostly, spyware has been the reason of various errors in computer system. Spyware damages files in the computer system and if once damaged then it is no longer used and it also corrupt registry database. The file which is infected by virus may be a program file, system file etc. If STOP 0x00000002 error occur in spite of antivirus then download anti spyware to scan your computer.

    Hope this information will help.
    Your response is very much appreciated. Thank you for using Fixya...
