Hopefully it was to Windows ME

Man, throw away the key on this guy. If people are finding exploits in the code now, imagine if they had the source code.

Your StartWindows function is missing a return type, may I recommend void? also "what ever you do",BlueScreenOfDeath and BlueScreenOfDeathAnyway are not declared, are they to be replaced by the pre-processor?

They must lock the man up immediately and place a gag order on him... otherwise he might reveal that the Windows core is written in Turbo Pascal in the 80s and hasn't been updated since :D:applause:

So, for anyone that doesn't reply to the thread by writing code, or for anyone that doesn't reply to the thread at all, that makes them a hypocrit? :rolleyes:
