BBcode 44 is a driver issue. Applications and their files cannot crash Windows 7 by themselves. Drivers from bogus third-parties can. Like Brand X serial
adaptor drivers or Brand X graphics cards being stressed by OpenCPN
graphics work. If the driver for your GPS serial
adaptor, or GPS
, or whatever, didn't come with Windows but was loaded online or from a manufacturer's CD it should be suspect. Most third-party Brand X hardware
drivers for such devices are trash. (I was a Windows driver programmer a while ago...the world's most bleak occupation).
