How to Fix Windows 7 BSoD [Black Screen of Death]

Windows 7 has proven to be much more stable than it’s predecessors. Of course those BSODs (blue screen of deats) have reduced and in some cases totally vanished.

So what is exactly is the New Black Screen of death ? There are instances when you log in and the screen goes black with nothing but a minimized Explorer window. Since it apparently looks Blank and Black, this “crash” is termed a Black Screen of Death. This is usually caused by a malware infection and sometimes affects XP and Vista as well as older servers and sometimes it totally out of no reason.

Luckily, Prevx has a solution in the form of a quick-fix. All you need to do is download their Black Screen Fix applet and it will clean up your system shell for you. It’s a  small download (48KB) and you can easily download it even while affected by the Black Screen by opening task manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del), clicking on “new task” and typing this command:

RUN ->

"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"
 "http://info.prevx.com/download.asp?GRAB=BLACKSCREENFIX"
