    I'm using my brothers laptop now which is annoying because ikinda hate laptops, but i was wondeing if anyone here has had this error and can help me!

    Problem 1. Basically i sometimes get the BSOD (or "blue screen error") and my computer randomally shuts down. I don't need a fix for this as much as problem 2 but it is getting annoying. NOTE it doesn't always BSE, windows "recovered from a vital error" and then my computer works again.

    Problem 2. When i click on start and then all programs, nothing happens, it just highlights it like it normally would but it doesn't show the list of programs. Right clicking and going on open doesn't help as only 9 programs are in there and none of them are particularly useful to me.

    I'm posting here about problem 2 because i have done every fix the google search provided me, including the hotfix microsoft made. I've also tried doing Start > Run > Regedit etc and modified values and stuff but that didn't work either. Kind of annoying because i would just do a full system format but i don't have the registry on a CD (didn't come with my computer...).


    Any person that helps or gives any sort of advice is a saint! Please help...

    YAY I fixed problem 2 (I STILL NEED HELP WITH BSOD IF POSSIBLE).

    Just incase anyone on the internet has this issue again, and happens to come across this thread, i fixed it doing the following:

    First, login as Administrator (or equivalent) and execute this command from Start, Run dialog:

    regsvr32 /i shell32.dll

    If ur using vista and wireless, that might be the problem. I have vista and used to use a wireless stick and sometimes it would BSOD randomly. I think it was because It didnt install properly even though it worked. Maybe its another piece of hardware?
