You can pause a BSOD, but you first have to disable the automatic restart of Windows.

Also, it's not possible to print screen a BSOD.

On that related topic, what the HELL was Microsoft thinking with Windows 8???
It went over as well as WinME.

Dumbasses.

Yup ya gotta wonder. I got it not long after it was released since I was building a new computer and figured I would stay current. It was like being in a foreign country and not knowing the language. First thing I did was figure out how to make it like windows 7. Now M$ is coming out with an update to do just that. IMHO they F'd this one up.

They're not making it that much like Win7. They're only bringing the button in the lower left back, not the menu. Clicking the button will bring up the Start screen, not the old Start menu. Or at least that's how I'm reading it.

If it makes you feel better Mark... since I returned from my little trip Sunday, I've seen the BSOD twice on my main PC. Time for a fresh rebuild and hoping it's not hardware. HDs are getting old though so it may be minor corruption. I usually start fresh, OS wise, every one or two years anyways and this is the longest I ever went without a clean slate so it's not unexpected.

Kind of off topic here, But if you ever need to get files off of a hard drive easily, you can get a docking station that a desktop drive plugs right into and the dock is connected to a PC with USB. You can get the files just like you would off a flash drive. I use one to backup my files because I do not like those silly portable drives that have always failed me. I just buy a full size drive and use it like a flash drive with the dock

That's what I'm doing to back up my data at the moment. I have a Synology NAS, too, but it stopped booting up, giving error beeps a while back, and I haven't put the effort into reviving it. I did like it functioning as a DLNA server for my different media files. But for backup purposes, yeah, I find the hard drive in a dock super-easy. I think it's SyncToy that I used to schedule an automatic backup based on what files have changed.
