Should I be Concerned

What would this mean? Anything to worry about?

in SYSTEM INFORMATION

go to System Summary

go to Software Environment

go to System Drivers....Then I found this in one of the many... But only one critical.

PCI Bus Driver...................................Description
c:\windows\syst................................File
Kernel Driver.....................................Type
Yes............................................... ..Started
Boot.............................................. ..Startmode
Running........................................... .State
Ok................................................ ..Status
Critical.............................................Error Control

Notice critical, will/could the PCI Bus Driver cause my computer to crash? It has crashed 3 times in the last 8 months.

You are misinterpreting the data :thumbsup:.

It's the Status column that's important. The Error Control column indicates that this is a critical element for reporting/alarm purposes.

Personally glad to see someone use native XP msinfo32 data, rather than a possible 3d-party tool :flowers:.
