Cause of Instant Reboot or BSOD


I'd just like to note that attempting to run VTune while Stardock Windowblinds is active will cause a blue screen of deathon Windows XP, yielding "win32k.sys" as the source.

After much testing and numerous restarts/crashes I was able to isolate the problem as WindowBlinds which was causing the crash. A quick google search confirmed my results.

This is a warning to future and current users of VTune, and I don't know if this is a problem with VTune or with Windowblinds, but I hope that Intel and Stardock can work together to isolate the problem and find a way to solve it.
