Blue screen of death

This is the third time in 2 days that my computer has randomly shut off and popped back up with the blue screen of death. Today it happened in the middle of a quiz for one of my classes, which I cannot repeat and therefore got a 0. So needless to say, I was not pleased. What did I do? Called Eric, of COURSE!

For information on Eric's wonderful feats that have saved us all in the past see:
1. Eric's saving index card.
2. The fixing of Lauren's camera.
3. Fixing my bracelet.
4. The fixing of my computer.

Not to mention the years before we started blogging...
...when Eric fixed an iPod I found discarded in the trash (it was clean!), which I still use today.
...when I was 9 or 10, Eric fixed my gigapet that I accidently dropped in a cup of milk.
...and MANY MANY MANY other un-blogged events.

Anyway, he gave me some advice about uninstalling some recently installed programs (a.k.a. Firefox, which I downloaded because I don't like blogging in Internet Explorer), and so far so good. We'll see if it works long term; I'm definitely optimistic!
