A computer running Windows NT 4.0 may display the following blue screen STOP message during a forced shutdown if a program is already quitting.
An asynchronous procedure call (APC) was dispatched to terminate a thread when the thread was already quitting. During the course of the APC, an attempt was made to load a system menu that required a callback to user mode, but because the thread was already quitting, the trap frame was NULL.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows NT 4.0 or Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

An attempt to load a system menu will no longer occur if the thread is exiting or in clean up.
