Better than the Blue Screen of Death

Put a CD with documents on it into my work computer (a Dell running Windows XP) and got a spectacular lock up.

What is it? How do I fix it?

It's the company's computer, so the long-suffering IT guy has to deal with it. A restart fixed it temporarily. Or fixed it for good.

In the short run, I went to another Dell box and got my work done.

Blue, white, yellow, green, red and gray vertical-stripe-pattern screen of death?

Jolly, happy, stripey screen of death?

There is software named as Digeus Registry Cleaner I recommend it when there are problems with windows. I also recommend Tune Up Suite. It automatically identifies and repairs common Windows problems.
