I am not sure why you would pull the memory chips when a blue screen appears..???
the bsod is an error msg..usually a fatal one..
Pulling the memory would do what???

Trapper, Actually I was in Outlook Express and it was in the process of "debuging" and would not shut down and that is why I pulled the plug. Now, you think it was Service Patch 4?
Two lessons I've learned:
1- When a blue screen appears, pull the memory chips myself,
2- Do not pull the plug when a program is "debuging".

    I think their should be a place for you to go to and complain and
    get re-imbursed for the troubles..If I bought a toaster and the
    toaster burnt my house down cuz it wasn't right, you betcha their
    would be a lot of recall and insurance claims etc..
    if you "DL" a software product by MS and it crashes your computer
    and cost you $ and down time then why should that be any different
    than a toaster.
    I wonder if in that small prints somewhere it has a disclaimer.
    Probably does.. Evidently that service pack 4 was re-witting your
    stuff when you pulled the plug on it..?
    I know some of these "DL" advise to backup ( theres that crazy
    word again) before you start a install. In case of a power outage
    or something..!
