We’ve all experienced it, the dreaded blue screen of death. With the dawn of Windows 7, these have become less prevalent, however they can (and do) still happen. Is it really the fault of Microsoft? I say nay nay!
Generally speaking, Windows 7, 8/.1, and the upcoming Windows 10, will only display a stop error (aka a BSOD, blue screen of death) when a hardware issue has occurred. Unlike previous versions of Windows, where a single application crash or freeze could take out your entire system, this is now a thing of the past.
