It's basically the computer saying "I don't know what to do or am upset about something and I can't work anymore." You might have lost any items open during the blue-screen. Your brother also might have damaged the registry enough that you won't easily be able to recover... but system restore should do the trick. Share Can't find your answer ? Ask !
