I'm not sure if I believe you. Maybe your computer crashed in the middle of the night and you just did'nt see it or something. You had to atleast get an error report message box or something.
Becuase the longest constant running time of XP I got is probably around three weeks.
The longest I've ever been without ANY form of crash(including random program exits or an error report message box) is probably about a week on the desktop I use.
My Piece Of Crap computer is actually what currently holds the record. Which would be about 2 months and still going actually, but ofcourse I rarely use it. In fact, all it really is a file server and router.
i doubt it, i have my account password protected and the guest account is rarely, if at all, used. and everyday i wake up i still have windows media player stil playing my playlist. i do shut it down, just not daily. maybe once or twice a week.
at times my Counter Strike closes, but that just happened recently after the new update for it.
i paid about $2,500, over the course of almost 2 years, for my computer, it is an Alienware running on XP Home. Radeon 9800XT graphics card, 200GB HD. 1GB Ram.
i did have a mean virus on my computer and i had to erase my HD, that was about August 04. ever since then i had no problems with it

OK.. to answer the threads question this is how my PC runs
OS: Windows XP Professional
CPU: INTEL PENTIUM 4 2.5 GHz
HDD: 115 GB
VC: ATI Radeon 9600 SE 128 MB
I have never in my life since i got this computer experienced a crash or a blue screen. I have had the PC freeze due to some programs that dont run or becuase i stumbled upon a bad web site that freezes the browser and have had to close the browser but thats it no crash.
I use this computer everyday and i even leave it on at night. I also reformat every 6 months or 1 or 2 times a year to get rid of junk i dont need and to have a fresh start again. What I can say is that the computer crashes because of who is using it. Remember computers are just a dumb piece of machinery that need someone to guide it.

There can only be CHAOS!
Though I am careful. Why wouldn't I have any protection? I've had the Antivirus, firewall, and the necessities. I think I know what I'm doing, I built the thing and maintain it at a high profile, consistantly.
Haha, yeah, I crashed my mom's computer doing that
Hell, simply using the smudge tool on a large file will cause the computer to lock up for a while because it's so memory-intensive, especially at the file sizes I work at -- I work at large enough sizes to print my stuff at poster size.
