Mathematica 5 and Windows XP
I suspect Mathematica 5 was the culprit of two nasty Windows XP crashes I have experienced during the past four months. In the second one, Internet Explorer (which was running when Mathematica's kernel crashed) got hopelessly corrupted. I'm not 100% sure it's Mathematica, but it is my prime suspect. Even if it is Mathematica, I'm ready to forgive it because it is such a great piece of software otherwise. However, it would it interesting to know when Mathematica is known to crash and what can be done to avoid destabilizing Windows (which is NOT a great piece of software). After the second crash, my rule is this: don't run anything else when Mathematica is working.
