A fatal error occurred at the office today, I am talking about that blue screen of death. You know the one, the one that causes you to sit and stare at the monitor in disbelief. Then you hit the power button a few times, it will pass, things will be alright again. Sweat beads on your forehead as you begin to remember all the important, irreplaceable things that are stored on the hard drive. Your hands shake a bit, your stomach feels as if the flu has moved in to stay.
Things were not alright again. And it wasn't my laptop, only proving there are miracles in this world. But it is an important computer and it does need to be fixed. I have actually never seen an error message like this before, it was very odd indeed.
"A thread tried to release a resource it doesn't own". There were a million numbers attached to the message of course, but that was the bottom line. Now why would a thread try to release a resource it doesn't own? That just doesn't make any sense. I think even if I spoke Microsoftese fluently it would never make sense.
I did some research. There are others out there suffering the same fate. It would seem that this is a particular problem for XP users who did the latest update. A faux pas by Microsoft, perhaps they didn't test the update enough. I would be very hesitant to download update KB971486.
I found solutions, but in all honestly, this is over my head. And I am not all that bad. For those of you XP users who update Windows, be afraid, be very afraid. Unless of course blue is your favorite color.
And FYI, the Mirriam Webster online dictionary says "fatal" means, "bringing death" or "bringing ruin". How true.
