I got a "blue screen of death" in Windows XP before - never seen that
before. Anyways, when I got back online, I looked at my Event Viewer, and
saw this. It says "No user intervention required", but I tend to doubt
Microsoft, and this definitely does scare me - should I worry about this?
The event log notes:

Error code 1000008e, parameter1 c0000005, parameter2 bf9fd8d5, parameter3
b4e0fba8, parameter4 00000000.

ID:1003

parameter4 %5.

Explanation
A blue screen (Stop error) was reported. The message contains details about
the error. A matching event with Event ID 1001 might also appear in the
event log. This matching event displays information about the specific error
that occurred.

User Action
No user action is required.

More info, as my computer again went down on me - this was in the event log
when I logged back in:

QoS [Adapter {5EE484A1-196B-4E06-B3C9-64D03FC98E7E}]:
The UpperBindings key is missing from the registry.
For more information, see Help and Support Center at

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
That link says that I should unistall and then reinstall the QoS adapter, as
Windows thinks the port is in the wrong spot, or something to that effect.

I have no problems doing this - but again, I just don't always trust what
they say to do and want to see if the experts have an opinion before I do
something really stupid.
