The Assumption

The ATI Radeon 9000 Driver Series, and likely other ATI driver series, makes assumptions about the location that the RTL_USER_PROCESS_PARAMETERS structure will be mapped at in the address space of a process that attempts to do 3D operations. If the structure is not mapped at the address that is expected, the machine may blue screen depending on the values that exist at the memory location, if any.
