Blue Screens getting to be an old friend.

    Starting using Vista about 3 weeks ago and I must admit I am amazed by the
    number of blue screens I have gotten. Just about all of them has to do with
    older versions of the software that I run.

    I had thought that Vista was going to prevent many of the blue screens, but
    that might be wishful thinking on my part. In any case, I hope that when the
    first SP comes out that Windows might be able to trap some of these errors
    before a blue screen.

    Do have to say the system restore feature seems to work much better in Vista
    than XP. As you can guess I have used it to get out of a software install
    gone bad.

    Since this information seems to be asked about:
    I am running a Dell 9200 Dual Core 1.86 with 2 Gig of memory
    A 256 Meg Video Card

    Windows did trap the error. that why it choose to crash the system, because
    the faulty component didn't handle the error so windows had to. The CPU
    warned windows of the error.

    Windows can't read minds, it has no idea what the component was tryng to

    It crashes rather than risk destroying data.
