2006-08-02 [Windows XP] 'I resumed XP from standby, and got the first image.  I surfed the W3, and stood by.  Fifteen minutes before writing this, when I resumed from standby, I got the second image  Furthermore, just before the Explorer jolt, I had task manager open, and there were two of just about every task running.

2005-09-01 [Windows XP] "basically i turned on my computer, checked email and went to your site and discovered today, just like many other days, windows decided not to display the 'safely remove hardware' icon in the system tray. it often does this to me even without any prior crashes while i'm working."

"i have attached a screenshot to show what i mean, and as you can see, i have a lacie external hard drive that is plug and play (so should be safely removed from the system tray icon) and also 4 digital camera memory card drives (its a 4 in 1 device) that is also a plug and play device. despite these devices being connected to my system and fully accessible, the icon doesn't want to appear."

2005-09-01 [Windows 2000 Professional] "Here's another glitch, using Win 2k Pro SP4.  I've noticed it for a long time (since at least SP 2).  Occasionally when you go to select multiple items on your desktop using the drag-n-drop method (click in an open space and drag over the selection you want) the "outline" that shows your selection freezes on the screen.  Symptoms can be fixed by F5 or by maximizing a window and then reducing it again.  Oh, yeah, and this is with active desktop turned on so that you can use .jpg backgrounds.  I haven't tested standard blue-screen backgrounds.  I duplicated multiple for you by dragging the highlight box down to my (hidden) start bar.  When the start bar activates itself, the computer "forgets about the fact you were doing a selection, however, I have this occur even when not bumping the start bar" - Donald

2005-05-04 [Windows XP] "I encountered this error when just trying to open Internet Explorer as usual.. I don't know if its anything to do with having Firefox installed.... Very annoying...there were about 60 boxes in total.." - Simon
