What LogMeIn and Intel announced back in September sounds incredibly helpful. I actually experienced a dreaded "blue screen of death" yesterday with my laptop. Fortunately, I was able to figure out that the anti-spyware/Windows Registry cleaner that I had installed the night before wasn't compatible with my Vista 64-bit laptop computer.
