Even though it occurs far less often in Windows 7 than it does in previous versions of Windows, the BSOD or the Blue Screen of Death still does occur.When it does occur your computer will automatically reboot itself. This is usually a good thing when the failure is due to an intermittent issue and your computer boots up without a problem, however if you’re trying to troubleshoot the issue causing the BSOD you don’t have enough time to write down all of the pertinent information so that you can use it to solve the issue. If you wish to prevent Windows from automatically restarting upon failure follow the instructions below.
