How do I fix a stop 7A error?

On one Dell Machine with XP Pro, I install a filter software, Cobion, and every time I get a STOP 7A error. The error seems to lead to a hardware problem, but I am not so sure. How do I fix it?
If you believe the Cobion software is the cause of the problem, then I would start by calling their tech support to see if this is a known issue and if a workaround is available.

If you want to troubleshoot the STOP error, you'll need the full information provided in the blue screen message such as "KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR."
