I can't even remember what the problems were but I do know I only
experienced them with one version of hardware and sftware respectively
and that Spyder had a work around.

Windows 2000? Launched in 1999. I'm ignoring them? Nonsense I've long
forgotten them.

I haven't had a blue screen since my initial days with XP.

With Windows 10 I have had a few externally caused experiences* which
which would munched Windows in the old days. But it always comes up
with a reboot although it sometimes takes a bit longer than usual.

out of steam before the upgrade has finished.
