Well the day before the problem occured , i was surfing the web and downloading some ebooks . I always downloaded there and put them into my PSP to read if i am bored of gaming. Anyway when i was downloading with a Internet Download Manager and surfing the net. Suddenly tons of internet explorer popped out , i started to cancel them but they come endlessly. Then suddenly all the icons and the start bar(not sure what its called , the bar below with the start button , shortcuts etc. dissapeared. All that remains was the wallpaper . I thought it was just an ordinary hang or something and shut down my computer as it was getting late too. The next day when i turned it on , all was fine , the icons were all there and etc. suddenly , the BSOD appeared. Don't really recalled what was said but i copied this down hoping it can be of help : A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
