Ghost 9 BSOD IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL module PQV2i on XP SP3

Hi All, I'm using Win XP SP3. all the latest security patches and Gost 9 .
Ghost worked fine for me up until recently when it started crashing with BSOD IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. it happens consistently each time I try to backup a drive be it the internal c: drive or a USB drive; with or without compression. I chkdsk'ed all the drives and all seems to be clear. I know its a game of "spot the difference" between when it worked and now. The only things I can think of are the latest windows updates.

Here is a snippet from the dump file, any help will be appreciated.

my PQV2i version is 2.0.4.403

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arguments:
Arg1: 00000000, memory referenced
Arg2: 00000002, IRQL
Arg3: 00000001, bitfield :
bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)
Arg4: 805177e4, address which referenced memory
