Before the restart (and BSODs), a couple of months ago, my screensaver started freezing up.
It's a screensaver promoting the features of this Acer computer, which is an Aspire 5739G, and a little ways into it, it activates the webcam. I had to Ctrl Alt Del out of it every time, and when I unlock the computer afterwards, both Acer Screen Saver and Acer Video Conference Manager give the "has stopped working" message.
Okay, so after that reboot, everything seemed fine...
until I walked away from the computer for awhile (presumably enough time for the screensaver to start).
While it's a bit less pushy with Windows Vista and 7, allowing users to postpone the restart for up to four hours, you may not be at the computer to intercept the first or subsequent notifications. However, it can be frustrating if you step away from a work session and come back to a freshly rebooted system.Open Start menu, right-click on Computer and click Properties.This will open System dialog box that will show basic information about your computer.You will now see a window that will look like this, Note: Microsoft recommends that you must keep your windows up-to-date in order to remain secure.And I recommend the same, my computer is always up-to-date, this is one reason I never get attacked by any kind of virus.
