All of the above mentioned are YES on my system. That should be part of proof You are looking for. WinXP Professional...and WB6 free managed to freeze XP to the reset button point.

No one is doubting you experienced it, but how is one to know that it is a Windowblinds problem and not a problem with your system, or other software on it, or drivers, or something else entirely?

Windows XP crashed once when I inserted a CD - which is aparently "proof" that CDs are unstable ;-)

I guess uptime ranging from 30 days to 3 months should be a good pointer if there is something wrong with my system.

About half the posts are problems...problems with stability mostly.
