IRQL Not Less Or Equal blue screen error

Just when I think things are back to normal with my pc, it suddenly starts to encounter an "Error_IRQL_ Not_Less_Or_Equal" blue screen error yesterday. The dreaded blue screen appears every time I turned on my modem and it got connected to the internet. According to the message contained in the blue screen my pc has encountered a fatal error and needs to shut down to protect my pc. I rebooted my pc and the error was still there. The only way to stop the error from occuring is when I did not on the modem. I then tried all sorts of tweaks to resolve the problem but to no avail. With no more options left I decided to re-install my Windows. I'm using Windows XP Home Edition on my pc and for the re-installation I chose the upgrade installation option. And thank God that worked ! No more annoying IRQL Not Less Or Equal blue screens after that. If anyone encountered the same problem as me, just do what I did and save yourself precious time and possibly a few gray hairs as well trying to find a solution to the problem.

Overture Keyword Suggestion Tool Is No More

Hmm. Looks like the Overture Keyword Suggestion Tool is officially gone. Tried to access the Overture Keyword Suggestion Tool website but was re-directed to the Yahoo Search Marketing site instead. I fired up my favorite keyword software "Keywords Analyzer" by Blue Inifinity and ran some keyword searches but it returned no results. Same thing with the free keyword tool, "Good Keywords". It has been like this since the beginning of the month. Overture keywords being down is really inconvenient. How am I going to do my keyword research now for my affiliate campaigns ? Most of my keyword software tools make use of Overture...and now with Overture gone they are all completely useless. Oh boy. At the moment I'm really stuck in my online money making now. Sigh.
