      If only it were that simple

      That’s like how to eliminate death and suffering in the world.

      Do you mean how to change the error message? That’s not possible, as it’s a function of the application that’s compiled into the application. The only way to change the error messages of an application would be to modify the application.

      When a Windows PC goes to high processor utilization or when a communication application cannot communicate, it either just dies or says ‘not responding’.

      Windows not responding isn’t just a popup error. It is generally an indication of a bigger problem. If it is on one specific app, check the error logs and see what it is that is causing the crasy/lockup. If it is across the board on random apps then it will be a more systemic problem like not enough memory, slow processor, file corruption or any number of things.

      Easy and Practical Solution

      If NO ONE purchased Windows 8 when it comes out, you’d see a massive change in the attitude Microsoft has about writing, selling and not supporting the crap they produce.

      Stay with what you have now or go Apple or Linux. Just don’t buy Windows 8 and watch what happens.

      Not explicitly possible, but…

      I may actually want to agree on Tony Hopskinson’s idea, though, like they say, the ‘PC’ is dead? I hate to agree on that but I will still continue to use a PC until Microsoft lawfully forces us to move onto a tablet computer no matter how you look at it, still.

      And of course, highly likely ‘Windows 8’ will be locked down like Mac OS X of course, there’s no telling what will happen, and full disclosure, I’d actually prefer a Windows 8 ‘jailbreak’ to come.
      There’s no telling what will happen, our future is on a crazy path, move up people, technology is moving on!
