Resources for How to Fix Blue Screens

bsod_smBlue Screens are definitely a show stopper when using Windows, whether they were caused by Windows registry or system file corruption, software conflicts, outdated or corrupt drivers, and even spyware infections. Since the system freezes when you get a Blue Screen, the mouse and keyboard will not respond and all you can do is shutdown and restart the PC with the power button.
