    So I installed my windows updates. yay... Had no notification that I needed to restart but I enjoy doing so (helps my conscience i guess).

    Computer shut down normally (well normal for mine, since it has the force shutdown of a program it does not tell me what is, lol ignore that). Computer boots up. All fine and dandy. Windows screen shows its blue godliness. time ticks. time ticks some more. I start to question whats up...

    Finally! Login screen availible. I type my password, I enter. Everything normal.

    Then suddenly, popup: Windows error something something unexpected shutdown, click for more details etc. So for the poops and giggles i clicked for more details. read on there that it has apparently had a bluescreen. <,< you what, mate? I saw no bluescreen. There is no "issues" of what I can see. PC functions normally.

    So what I am asking is;
    Is it possible that a computer has a false-positive bluescreen report? Or
    did my PC micro-crash on shutdown/restart?
    If it did have a split second bluescreen, should I look into it or do so if it happens often instead?
    Maybe my PC just "sneezed" hehe xD so what's your input on my split second ghost-bluescreen?
