"The source of your problem definitely lies between keyboard and chair"

No the problem is with windows. but it is not in the registry and it is not about crashing programs you are right about that it is about dll's. The thing is people who do not know computers that well may still observe the problems with windows xp very clearly.

I fail to see how 3rd party buggy dll is the Windows problem.

Such people would experience similar problems with buggy software in any other OS.

Then you probably fail to see why a virus or worm is a windows security problem they must just not write that kind of software;-)
A dll that is better for one app and is therefore replaced can make a other app unstable that kind of problem does not happen on linux but that is one of the many serious design flaws of windows.

If program is the only thing suffered, then not. If system was the one suffering, then yes, it is a problem. It simply shouldn't happen'
