RE: Blue Screen asking if you recently added hardware or software
What kind of blue screen?
You sure it's not a popup window from IE? Sh?tty companies will try and
disguise a web page to look like it's coming from your PC. If you click on a
link in the window, it'll either try to install malware or send you to a site
the says it has software to fix "ALL" your PC's problems.
Check the task manager to see if IEXPLORE.EXE is there - assuming you
believe IE is closed. If it is, it's probably malware. If so, something on
your PC is loading this crap.
These "windows" are generally very general in it's message.
