How To Crash Windows Vista With Two Fingers

Almost all of us who uses a computer, knows how shortcut keys eases our navigation. But don't you know that you can crash a PC running in Windows Vista operating system just by pressing some shortcut keys. The Window Key + E keys, which in Windows XP and Windows 2000 is the shortcut key to open the Windows Explorer, crashes the Windows Vista operating system.

According to a news article from Softpedia:

Windows Vista can be completely killed by pressing a simple combination of just two keys. All you need to crush Microsoft's latest operating system and put the much-applauded Wow at an end is two fingers. This issue has been reported independently of Microsoft, and the Redmond company has failed to issue any official comment at the time of this article. The immediate question which comes to mind is if the problem is a security vulnerability or a simple bug.

Pressing the Windows key together with "E" will start Computer in Windows Vista. Keeping the two keys pressed will open a large volume of Computer windows. Want to crush Windows Vista? Nothing could be simpler. Just keep the two keys pressed for more than 20 – 30 seconds.

I'm itchy to try this. One of my co-worker, rex, has a new laptop that runs on Windows Vista. I'll try this experiment on his laptop tomorrow. (^_^)
