I am not sure why you would pull the memory chips when a blue screen
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..!
Trapper, The DL was Windows 2000 Service Pack 4. Carl
