Why Does WINDOWS "CRASH" so often?? RRS feed

  • Question

  •              We've all seen in the past that computers running on Windows has a tendency to crash when multiple programs are opened at once. Why has'nt microsoft done anything to prevent it? Instead of merely upgrading the visuals and the artistic essence in Windows, microsoft should have worked out this problem of crashing windows which haunts millions of Windows users across the globe.

                 Many think that Microsoft should focus on solving this problem first by using more efficient methods of using the availible resources. This will ensure that optimum performance is delivered making the Windows platform more reliable and would make it the users favourite.

                 If any microsoft officals do happen to glance through this article, please to take action and do create a program to make Windows Anti-Crash.

  • Windows should not crash when multiple programs are running. Your issue is caused by software conflict. One of the running programs conflict with others. You may find the exact program and notice the publisher of the program.

  • Crashes aren't really just tied to Windows, if you have ever used Linux or any other OS, you quickly see limitations there too. That said, the majority of Windows crashes are due to third party developers developing buggy drivers and applications (or applications that don;t comply with stated guidelines and standards). I've written an entire series of posts on third party developers and the stupid errors that they cause, everything from basic crashes to bad programming practices. This is something that Microsoft can't really protect against. This is synonymous to trying to protect against all of the stupid things that someone could possibly do, which would essentially eliminate all useful functionality.
