Microsoft's most interactive program which enables you to watch your computer slowly be eaten away by the crap like style of the so called WINDOWS franchise. If you want to get this program, it's quite easy really, free of charge. Just open Internet many times and copy and paste random vids on to the internet address bar and load it. It will then show you some random coded jargon that Bill Gates used to manipulate his users, of which they copy the so called Error Code and try to troubleshoot the system. Here are some steps to troubleshoot the system or BSOD.

1. Shoot the goddamn computer for god's sake.
2. Get a mac
3. Use linux
4. There really isn't anything else you can do except keep the system and watch it dump your files "MORE JARGON"
The Blue screen of death literally will kill you on impact.
