Windows crashes RRS feed

  • Question

  • My program spawns many incidences of itself.  The other processes all access a block of memory created by

    CreateFileMapping()

    and

    MapViewOfFile().

    All processes work properly, there are no errors found by the Visual Studio debugger; there are no errors listed in the Event Viewer, and the answers from my program are all correct.

    But after I run it, if I open Thunderbird or Word, I see a black screen.  All lines that should be text are black.  And the Start | Power | Restart option is dead.  I have to shut down the PC and reboot.

    I suspect this is a Windows bug.  Can anyone suggest a cause or cure?
