Vista Hyperbolic Error

I got this error in Vista yesterday. I closed the error, closed my other programs and rebooted. Was it really Catastrophic? Come on. Whoever writes these errors is not thinking. A user doesn’t want to see that. They want to see something friendly. I would have rewritten this error to say, “Something bad happened and we can’t tell what. The best thing would be to reboot.”

Windows errors are so damn obscure. I wish they would spend some time giving better information on error. I spend an hour yesterday trying to fix another machine when Word 2007 kept crashing. The Office diagnostics said, “Nothing is wrong!” Meanwhile, it was jacked. Eventually, I discovered that erasing a small bit of registry fixed the problem. I found this out in a Microsoft forum. Why can’t Office erase that registry entry itself? It knows about the fix?

I am just saying, The features of Vista and Office 2007 are great. Now work on the quality.

  1. It would be much friendlier and cuter if it had an audio of Matthew saying “uh-oh!” instead!
