If you receive System 53 you are lost.  Its the Windows bug and there is
nothing that anyone can do to fix it.  Microsoft has marked the bug

The only thing you can do is wait for the IFS client which I hope will
be later this week.

aklog.exe is freezing because it is stuck in the SMB redirector code
path attempting to communicate with the \\AFS server.

The 32-bit aklog will attempt to load 32-bit KFW libraries.  If they
aren't installed, 32-bit aklog won't work.
