    windows crash?

    Can someone tell me why this code seems to crash windows??

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main (void) {
         while (1)
             printf ("\t\t\b\b\b\b\b\b");
    
         return 0;
    }
    yet another bug among thousands in XP?

    How long you run it until the computer restart? I ran it and the memory and processor seemed stable

    This was reportedly fixed in XP SP1 which was released 2 years ago. Can you confirm that you don't have SP1 installed?
