Today while using firefox 4 my PC suddenly froze then crashed with a blue screen. I just had time to read something about it closing to protect windows and the PC reset. Its been okay since so it may be a one off problem. So i was wondering,

Would such a crash produce an error report and if so where

Are there any free programs that would do a basic test of the components in case there are any hardware problems.

Look in the event viewer.
