    Nah sometines the computer bluescreens for several random reasons,most of the time nothing to be worried about but sometimes it might be serious like a virus or something, i suggest scanning your computer just incase. Also another case could be that your computer dosent have enough ram thats happened to me acouple of times while playing games

    If it doesn't happen again it should be fine. In the meantime you should try scanning your disks for any errors. Your computer suddenly crashing could have produced some.

    There's a quick and easy way to fix and avoid this forever.

    Install Linux.

    @Midna: Just because Linux has GreenScreens of Death?
    Does this make Linux better than Windows?
    Linux and Windows are both powerfull!

    Well I got this recently, the only malicious file I had was "reader_s.exe". Got rid of it and now everything is dandy.

    I actually thought it was something to do with the forum (paranoia due to recent going ones) as it always happened when I went on here but it didn't happen on my other PC's and since removing the file nothing has happened since.

    Probably unrelated but just chipping in.

    why?
    You can just figure out what caused it, do the right stuff and then it will be fine.
