i opened my pc and then run some applications (excel, word and pinball) when suddenly it hang then the blue screen of death appears. and it says: "a process or thread crucial to system operation has enexpectedly exited or been terminated."
and here is the technical information: ***STOP: 0X000000F4 (0X00000003, 0X8208B020, 0X8208B194, 0X805FA160)

First off was something wrong with the computer that you needed to open it for? If not I'd recommend keeping the case closed as much as you can :)

Doing some forum/Google browsing I ended up finding: http://support.micro...kb/330100/en-us

That seems most relevant to your problems but this definitely isn't my forte.
