A Recent Blue Screen of Death hitting all computer users

The Blue Screen of Death (also known as BSoD or Blue Screen), known officially as a Stop Error [1] or a bug check, is the error screen displayed by the Microsoft Windows family of operating systems upon encountering a critical error, of a non-recoverable nature, that causes the system to crash. The term is named after the color of the screen generated by the error. In Unix-based operating systems, a similar term is kernel panic.

Stop errors are hardware or driver related, causing the computer to stop responding in order to prevent damage to the hardware or data. In the later versions of Windows (Windows NT and later) the screen presents information for diagnostic purposes that was collected as the operating system performed a bug check.

So far Antivirus programs were designed to prevent “Blue Screen of Death”. This theory seems to have outdated itself. A recent update to Symantec's antivirus software rendered some Windows-based PCs inoperable, the security software maker disclosed Friday (July 13th 2012) due to some compatibility problem.

The Blue Screen of Death occurs once Windows encounters a critical problem from which it cannot recover without halting operations to a stop after posting the diagnosis of the problem in the form of the Blue Screen error. In more recent versions of Windows, the remnants of the PC’s memory till that point are saved to a dump file for analysis later by an expert.

Most of the time Registry (File system) errors are the one cause. Without going into too much detail, the registry is a set of entries and instructions made by every program and application that is installed and running on your system. So if any of these registry entries are somehow corrupted or deleted, the program or device that depends on it is likely to malfunction and result in an error.

Only experts with thorough knowledge on how to edit the registry can repair it. Even so, it can be beyond repair sometimes. In such cases, there are usually two alternatives. One is to use Windows System Restore to go back to a restore point from an older date before the registry was affected, but this can be slow and cumbersome.
