    I am quite pleased with xp but i got an strange problem. I guess an
    normal program or a service of xp running in the background causes an
    bluescreen after 13d 22h uptime (nr.1 and nr.4 in the list:
    http://uptime.0rd.net/page.php?page=toplist&content=profile&uid=4976 )
    what can i do to detect the program causing this (obviously) overflow?

    What is that list on the webpage showing? It's looks only like the last
    15 measured times between bluescreens, reboots. There is nothing there
    to show any problems.

    Besides, why check uptimes of a MS OS, it seems a bit pointless :)

    What you should try looking at is the System and Application Event logs,
    look for the blue screen entries and any Event IDs messages / error
