The “MAILSLOT_FILE_SYSTEM” error with stop code 0x00000052 is a rare Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) error. It’s related to the mailslot file system in Windows, which is a mechanism for inter-process communication (IPC).

A mailslot is a pseudofile that resides in memory that applications can write to and read from. It’s a service provided by the Windows operating system, which allows one process to send messages to another process or signal certain events.

Although detailed information on this specific stop error is limited, Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) errors typically occur due to hardware issues, corrupt system or driver files, recent software changes, or problematic system services.

As with any BSOD error, you can start with the following general troubleshooting steps:

  1. System Restore: If you have a system restore point that was created before you started experiencing this issue, you can use it to revert your system to a previous state.
  2. Disk Check: Use the CHKDSK utility to check for any hard drive issues.
  3. System File Checker: Use the System File Checker (SFC) tool to repair missing or corrupted system files.
  4. Clean Boot: Perform a clean boot to eliminate software conflicts.
  5. Update System and Drivers: Make sure your system and all drivers are up to date.

If you recently installed new hardware or software, consider uninstalling it to see if the problem resolves. In case these steps don’t help, consult a professional or your system’s manufacturer for further support. Remember to always back up your data before making any significant changes to your system.W
