Just a moment ago, while on Aol, for no apparent reason, a blue screen came up saying that Windows had been shut down to prevent damamge to the pc. It said that if this was the first time that this had happened then to reboot. It also suggested a hardware fault, and to use safe mode to see if that assumption was correct. Failing all of this it said that the bios needed updating. It seems fine now, so what has happened? In other words....Help, please.
I would'nt worry to much if it is the only time that it has happened that message you got is standard one. I had the same thing months ago on my laptop when it was only 6 months old and it has fine ever sinse

The only one for about the time it happened is under System. It has a warning sign, and it has to do with Dhcp at 18:18:27. Under application there's an error to do with MsiInstaller, that was just after 6pm, but that's it for todays date.
I was getting the blue screens three or four times a day and posted regularly for advice. Tried all kinds to remedy the problem. Have had one blue screen in last 2/3 months and don't know why all quiet now. As people have said, try not to worry too much, these things happen now and again and you may not find out why.
Thanks everyone, have got a funny feeling that it was a program that was running. I hadn't realized that it was running. Have uninstalled and will see what happens over next 24 hrs or so, and yes I will try not to worry.
