  1. Hi all,

    Thought I might reach out to the community to see if I can make my life easier.

    I'm trying to minimize the chances of crashes/BSOD from deploying PC's (XP/7) for remote purposes.

    Any tips or suggestions, on tweaks and disabling services?
    (because they will be mainly for remoting in, I can forgo with visual effects and what not...)

    Thanks and I hope this thread will help others like me. :)

    Windows PC - BSOD/crash proof?... No such thing, in the real World :'(
    The best you can do is to keep up with all the Windows Updates, including all the optional updates. Choose a good Antivirus/antimalware program and temp file cleaner, and be careful where you surf

    I just want to add that for those that need a computer to just run and don't care if it has a BSOD, but must be able to restart it self to windows...You guys can also turn off the auto startup repair that might be defaulted.

    Command is: bcdedit /set {default} bootstatuspolicy ignoreallfailures
    *must run as admin under cmd.

    To re-enable: bcdedit /set {default} bootstatuspolicy displayallfailures
