Default Prevent Windows From Rebooting

You can stop Windows from rebooting after a crash by doing the following:
Right-click My Computer
Select properties
Select the Advanced Tab
Under Start-up and Recovery, uncheck the Automatic Restart box and then click OK.
Reboot the computer

Now when your computer crashes, you should see the confusing Blue Screen of Death along with an error code.
