    If you are or ever were a Windows user, you’re likely familiar with the Blue Screen of Death (BSoD). The bug check screen, with its lines of error codes, has been part of Windows since version 1.0. It has represented the crashing of computers — and the frustration of users — for decades.

    The BSoD was never intended to be user friendly, though. It was made for engineers who wanted to figure out why a PC crashed. For the rest of the world, it signifies the downside of owning a Windows device.

    The iconic Stop Error screen is getting a facelift with Windows 8. The redesigned OS also includes speed and stability improvements, a Metro interface optimized for touchscreens and an app store.

    The new BSoD doesn’t include all of the bug checks or lines of code that have defined the error screen for years. Instead, the Windows 8 BSoD includes a giant sad emoticon and a simple message that “your PC ran into a problem” and that it has to restart.

    We’re fans of the new error screen — it’s much clearer and more user-friendly — though I hope there’ll be fewer chances to see it. Do you like the new Blue Screen of Death.

    I'll BE damned! I am wrong. I'll keep my mouth shut next time till I do my research. My apologies to you.

    Mike, apology accepted completely.

    Just to explain my side briefly: I've been doing what I do for a while and have a fair amount of success at it. It just gets a little frustrating to me because we were discussing the very primitive basics. As a good analogy, it would be like me trying to tell Derek Jeter or Pujols or Bautista how to hit a fastball. They do that every day while I do not.

    Being a stand up dude is more important than anything so that's a huge plus towards your character.

    In case anyone is interested, I can detail the process of how to do so. It is not for the install and simply make it work crowd. It's a bit of a process, you have to do this, that and the other thing, but once it is working, it is set and forget and all is well.

    So yup, if anyone is seriously interested, I'll add instructions here by request.
    I would most certainly be interested (& be grateful) if you would add instructions. (I found it already, many thanks)

    GMan, I seem to be in the same difficulty as jrzpol (#27). Did you, by any chance, respond to him (may be privately?). Any insights and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
