    Hi everyone,

    I am using my computer for not so long. One week ago I got a Blue Screen. As an any newbie I was shocked and didn't know what to do. I reinstalled entire Windows, lost some useful files and spent 6 hours on configuring my system! It was terrible.
    I have a question does anyone know if there is some software that could save XP from Blue Screen?
    I believe that it could save much time and nerves spent on Windows reinstall.

    Any advices are appreciated!
    Thank you in advance!

    Hi kathyPol,

    I had the same problem as you not so long ago. I was too tired to reinstall my XP for the 6th time.
    I found System Optimizer suite from Digeus.
    it is now 4 monthes my PC is working stable without Windows reinstalling, so I quess that suite helped me.

    it depends on what the blue screen said
    sometimes its a very simple fix of re-installing a device driver

    to stop the blue screen flashing past
    goto
    control panel>
    system>
    advanced tab>
    startup and recovery - settings>
    under the title - system failure
    untick - automatically restart

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;320299

    now when it crashes - it willnot restart and the blue screen should stay on the screen
    post the info on the screen
    it will give the errorcodes and a filename, if caused by a driver.

    Click Start, click Run, type eventvwr.msc in the Open box, and then press Enter.
    Click the Application category.

    Look For Recent Errors > Double Click on them > Another Windows Will open > On the Right Side use the Double Notepad icon to copy the error paste them here

    Navigate to "%SystemRoot%\Minidump"
    Zip some of the latest 'minidumps' and attach them in your next reply
