Known as a bug

This is not a joke, this is an actual result of an "analysis" done by Microsoft after i submitted an automatic application crash report. Note that it says that the problem is "MSN Messenger is not responding" - well, i don't have MSN Messenger on this computer and the program that crashed was Windows Explorer. But anyway, enjoy:

MSN Messenger is not responding: try these steps

Thank you for submitting an error report.

Problem description

This type error occurs when MSN Messenger is slow or has stopped responding and you choose to shut it down.

Possible causes

Our analysis shows that some of the reasons for unresponsive applications include, but are not limited to:

  • A problem in the application software itself—also known as a bug—that has caused the application to become unresponsive.
  • Spyware, malware, or other malicious software on the computer.

Thank you, Microsoft. I had a hunch that i'm an idiot, but now i'm sure.

The original might still be accessible here.
